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.
Have you ever woken up from a dream so vivid you’re convinced it’s real? This issue has been inspired by dreams, both the ones that happen while we sleep and the ones we control – our aspirations for the future. Activist Nimco Ali is campaigning for a world that respects the rights of young girls. Performer Soma Ghosh wants us to shed our feminist guilt and embrace our sexuality, as she investigates whether porn can ever, really, be feminist. And Alex Merry conjures up surreal, magical creatures from her kitchen table. Elsewhere, we spend a day chilling in our PJs, Charly Cox writes us a poem for the changing seasons and Mahalia sings us some sassy-sweet soul. Come join us.
