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.
Say hello to the very first issue of the new quarterly magazine, The Maverick Guide. Started in 2019, The Maverick Guide is an indie publisher all about good food, travel, culture and artisanal communities up and down the UK.
The Spring 2021 issue looks at marvellous places for a UK staycation, from the Cotswolds and Bruton in Somerset to self-catering cottages in Cornwall. There's an interview with Chris Onions from The Old Dairy Kitchen, accompanied by mouth-watering seasonal recipes. They dive into the folkloric history of fairies and the foxglove, and explore 'cottagecore,' the simple life aesthetic involving meadows, and paisley dresses blowing in the breeze.
You'll also find food photographer Aimee Twigger, quirky ceramicist, Jo Brimble, South West spas to visit and houseplant healthcare.
