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.
With a subject such as family we couldn’t feature only one main ingredient in Volume 04. Ginger and Turmericare part of the Zingiberaceae family, both known for their healing properties we can’t think of a more apt time to feature both of these gnarly roots. To give us a bit more insight we asked Zoe and Tom of Wunder Workshop share some of their knowledge on these two ingredients. We also sat down with food writer, Anna Jones who chatted to us about motherhood, her only family roots and her hotly anticipated cookbook due out next year.
The pandemic no doubt through a spanner into the works with this latest issue but our wonderful team embraced these new restrictions and we couldn’t be more grateful for them. Photographer, Luke Fullalove visited three families in-between London lockdowns where they shared their stories and their connection to food. I was lucky enough to visit Merlin Labron-Johnson at Osip in Somerset this past August where he shared with me his ethos on food and his future plans. In the travel & sustainability sections you’ll find us bouncing around the globe with Marta Greber and her family in their campervan before we head to Niger to learn about the food crisis that is impacting the indigenous people and what we can do to help. It’s a packed issue, one that is close to all of our hearts. We hope that this brings you a bit of joy wherever you may be.
