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.
PIN–UP is a magazine that captures an architectural spirit, rather than focusing on technical details of design, by featuring interviews with architects, designers, and artists, and presenting work as an informal work in progress – a fun assembly of ideas, stories and conversations, all paired with cutting-edge photography and artwork.
An entire issue inspired by the SUN!
On the cover: A flaming ball of fire conceived by creative masterminds Willo Perron and David Black.
Inside: architecture historian Beatriz Colomina discusses sunlight, architecture, and illness; meditations on L.A.’s iconic Bonaventure Hotel by Fiona Alison Duncan with a visual portfolio shot by Torso; a sunbook special with reflections on melting modernism, tanning beds, heart-shaped resorts, nudist utopias, architectural sunsets, and a forecast of tomorrow’s sunglasses by Common Accounts; An obsessive sunflower portfolio by Pim Top; a trip to Provence with style maven Clémande Burgevin Blachman; Nerea Calvillo on pollen, particles, and pollution; an ode to shadows featuring this season’s finest sofas, and architect Christian Wassmann’s manifesto of the sun.
