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.
Spring is just around the corner to reinvigorate us with longer days and buds bursting forth. We’re welcoming sweet spring breezes with our first theme of the new decade – air. This precious and fragile element unites us, and our designers translated this ethereal concept into tangible knits and crochet. Each pattern captures the spaces between the stitches, with gauzy mohairs, modern lace, and airy open textures.
Featuring designs by:
AMALIA SIEBER // BRONTË SWANNICK // CAMILA LARSEN ESVEILE // JOJI LOCATELLI // LANA JOIS // MARA LICOLE TAYLOR // MEGHAN FERNANDES // NATALIYA SINELSHCHIKOVA // ROSEMARY (ROMI) HILL // WENCKE PETERMANN
For art direction and styling, we collaborated with multi-disciplinary artist Ocean Rose to capture this collection of atmospheric patterns. Ocean also lends their talents for a how-to on flower arranging so you can create your own welcome to spring with a floating botanical decoration. Your taste buds will be catered for by Kat Goldin’s meringue recipe, and finally we have an interview with body-positive activist and designer Jacqueline Cieslack.
Pause, take a deep breath and find your space this spring.
