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.
Autumn is here and we’re ready to dive into the veritable pile of leaves that is Issue 22! We have our first ever guest editor Juju Vail, a long-time friend and collaborator, who has brought her luscious style and love of pattern to the pages of Pom Pom. Juju gives us the ultimate inspirational handmade wardrobe, including clothes that have been sewn to compliment this issue’s knits. And oh the knits! Bold colours, patterns galore, all with the rich, warm tones of the season: conkers, berries, and earth.
Alongside the patterns we have articles on the makers Emilia Jensen and Merchant & Mills, Meghan Fernandes discusses pockets, plus our resident columnist Anna Maltz unpicks the style choices we have as makers. Our crafting time ends with a delicious recipe for a cider hot toddy. Cheers! Let’s get making!
