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.
If you love spring mornings, autumn afternoons, winter evenings and summer nights then this companion guide is made for you.
Over 256 glorious pages, we’ve gathered together some of our favourite dishes, weekend projects and gardening ideas for each season, then mixed in expert advice, beginner guides and fascinating collectors. All in one beautiful book that will be as at home on your coffee table as it will in your kitchen.
In constantly changing times we hope this anthology reassures and calms as well as prompts you to create. And, most of all, provides a cheery reminder that life is good if you remember to slow down a little, enjoy what you have and make the most of where you live.
Editor’s note: These features are selected from The Simple Things’ 2015-2017 issues (31-66), curated by the Editor, Lisa Sykes, each article has been redesigned and updated. This is our second anthology volume, the first (which is on sale here) included the best articles from 2012-2015, none are repeated in this new volume.
