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.
Pressing Matters magazine - Issue 6 It’s great to see that both local and global communities are thriving – all championing their favoured techniques, whilst celebrating printmaking as a whole. It’s something we strive to echo in the magazine; community-led stories from the USA and South Wales, shared experiences of balancing parenting with printing, new spins on old techniques and everything in between.
The magazine is also an opportunity to ask questions, like ‘How do they make paper?’ or ‘What is wood litho?’ – and the geekier the question, the more interesting the answer, it seems. It was a real treat to visit St Cuthberts Mill to witness their paper-making process and chat over the challenges they face in making paper that will withstand even the harshest of treatment in the hands of printmakers.
As (featured artist) John Pedder’s print so nicely puts it, ‘Knives are for creating, not destroying’ and we aspire to be a positive voice on all things inky, doing our bit to inspire and educate.
