We are Pics & Ink - a new way of buying interesting and unusual magazines, the type most people can’t find in their local newsagent.
The internet is great, it means we can access pretty much anything from pretty much anywhere. Magazines have yet to benefit from this. We aren’t about reading magazines online because we really like the touch, smell and beauty of great paper.
So let us be your guide through the world of independent magazines. We’ll tell you about them, show you a few pages, then we will pack them up very carefully and post them to your door.
Loupe is a biannual mag which explores contemporary issues through photography.
Issue 12, 'Play,' explores playful processes of photography, play therapy, nightlife, performance and identity, collaboration, virtual realities, and war play.
Inside you'll find a playful photographic response to gay 'hook up adverts,' a response to the uneasy military-focused children's camps in Poland and an analysis of the decline of rave culture accompanied by portraits of ravers as the sun comes up.
