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.
A brighter shade of green: Kate Simpson explores the past, present and future of publishing and its lasting effects on the environment.

Interview: Award-winning video games scriptwriter Rhianna Pratchett talks about transitioning from reviewing games to writing them.
And as always, the magazine is packed with advice, more original writing from our readers, our directory of competitions, lit mags, events, and more!
