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.
This issue, we’re celebrating the joy of getting lost. Seeking solitude and hiding ourselves away – just for a little while. But, most of the time, we also need to be found.
Respite isn’t dependent on being alone. Sarah Corbett tells us how she brings people together to gently protest through crafting, and we meet the women of Iceland, the Nordic nation paving the way when it comes to gender equality.
Elsewhere, we meet the women creating art in their bedrooms, Greta Bellamacina writes a poem especially for us, and Olivia Colman encourages us to stand together, to know that – no matter what you’re going through – we’ve got your back.
