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.
In need of a care package? The new issue of The Simple Things is full of feel better ideas and kitchen table projects.
KIND – Tea, cake & sympathy. Art to spend time with and reading to rewild. How to get some rest. Picnic pie & nettle soup. Where to shop zero waste. Working with wood. Songs about birds. Appreciating rebel plants. Hand-me-down recipes
The garden birds perched like four firm friends on our cover is a sight you’ll never see in real life (the ferociously territorial robin would see to that). But it’s a painting that made us smile because they appear to be doing what good friends do; hang out, have a chat, share news – be kind to each other. When we reach out and show kindness to others, whether through tea and cake at our kitchen table or by supporting just causes, it makes us feel good and positive, powerful even, that our small actions have changed our world just a little bit. Perhaps part of the solution to a problem is simply sharing it.
