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.
In the uncertain times we’re living in, finding your own place in the world has never felt more vital. Whether it’s in the company of a good book, your best friend or simply being content with the face that stares back at you from the mirror. We hope this issue helps you on your own journey.
We’ve had the honour of meeting a host of inspirational women who have taught us new ways of seeing the world, including the authors stepping into the shoes of real women from the past and the remarkable models of the Radical Beauty Project who all have Down's syndrome, but will never let labels define who they are.
Elsewhere, we LOL with Charly Clive, launch our first ever poetry competition and throw in some fruit for good measure – because we're good for you, like your five-a-day.
