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.
Our vivid and dramatic Winter 2020 collection is guest edited by Stephen West and Aimée Gille, we’re thrilled to publish their vision! Together, they have bought their passion for colour, texture, and bold design to the pages of Issue 35.
Stephen and Aimée, as a dynamic duo themselves, chose colourful collaborations as their theme for this issue! Prepare yourselves for delightful pairings in these winter bright designs, ranging from a designer-yarn dyer collaboration, to two designers working on the same design, to two paired yarns just destined to be worked together!
The 10 knit and crochet designs combine colours in different ways, from mohair marling, to graphic double knitting, and simple colour pop stripes. Celebrate vivid hues and bright motifs to bring a spark of joy to the winter months!
Featuring designs by:
ALICE CAETANO // AINUR BERKIMBAYEVA // BRISTOL IVY // GEORGE CULLEN // HIROKO PAYNE // LES GARÇONS // OLGA BURAYA-KEFELIAN // SANDRA GUTIERREZ // STEPHEN WEST // THIEN-KIEU LAM // ZACHARY WILDER
Also to enjoy this issue is a conversation between Gaye Glasspie and dyer Adella Colvin of Lolabean Yarn Co. and Aimée’s signature scone recipe that she serves at L’Oisive Thé.
