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 the new year commences, it’s important to stay hopeful and celebrate new beginnings. Having spent a lot more time in 2020 working from home, the views from our windows have taken on new meanings – making us perhaps a little more receptive to the small moments and subtle changes that make the world go round.
Issue 14 is a celebration of artists digging deep in their everyday lives to keep on creating. Making work that’s borne from a need to stay connected to the things they love – their culture, their love of nature and sometimes their favourite musicians.
Even in these times of rules and restrictions, the spirit of collaboration, community and, above all, ingenuity shine on, proving that printmaking can be a tonic for the soul as well as a treat for the eyes. And boy, are you in for a treat!
