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.
Narrowboat is the leading magazine for Canal and River History in the UK. Full of archive photographs, Narrowboat explores the rich history of the waterways and the people and industries that depended on them. This issue looks at the twilight of horse-boating in the 1970s, life as a family working and living canalside in the early 1900s and dives into the history of the Gower Branch.
