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.
As self-employed artists and printmakers, many of our readers may also be looking to the future and taking stock of the challenges ahead. But the printmaking community (along with the world as a whole) is getting creative and finding new ways to stay in touch and be there for each other – live-streaming their making sessions and sharing their knowledge and processes like never before.
It feels more important than ever to connect people with the universal themes within the articles in this issue. Be it Yu Chengyou’s landscapes that evoke a much needed sense of calm, or John Amoss through-hiking the Appalachian trail – a true tale of endurance and reflection. If you are self-isolating and need to look to new sources of inspiration, Evgeniya Dudnikova’s mixing of dreams and memories is something we can all try – so get that sketch book out, drift a while and write down your ideas – they might come in handy.
It’s definitely a time to reflect and take note of the important things in life. For so many of us, playing with print is as much a form of meditation as it is a creative expression, so make sure you are taking time to cut, ink and print – a much needed creative outlet during these strange and changing times.
