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.
BALM – Veg box suppers & feelgood teas. Cheering up a chore. Grow your own blossom. Marmite stew & savoury scones. How to have a weekend away at home. Why we love a lighthouse. The comfort of takeaways. Can-do thinking. Lichen to like.
When we’re in need of a tonic where do we turn? In normal times we can count on friends or family to be there. In these times we’ve relied on favourite books or belongings, pets, pastimes and projects to see us through. Now there’s another source of balm to ease our worries too. It’s called spring. The merest glimpse of new shoots can lighten our hearts, while buds and blossom fill us with hope that better times are coming. As the sap rises, so does our energy – seeing us pencilling in plans, talking of trips and gathering new ideas. Most years March can feel like the start of things but, here and now, we need to believe that more than ever.
