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.
There’s a promise at the heart of every issue of The Simple Things; that taking time to live well is worth it.
For some this means sharing good things to eat or making something proudly homemade. For others it is about exploring interesting places, meeting makers and artists and learning new skills.
It could be about finding your own ways to feel better and enjoying the comfort of things. Or, in fact, all of the above.
Lucky then that this PROMISE issue ticks all of those boxes.
Enjoy summer with the simple things.
Places away from it all. Back garden tapas. Sharing supper on the sands. Picking blackberries & pressing flowers. Dolphins. How to parent yourself. Wild sleeps & second breakfasts. Toast art and trying Regency embroidery. Why micro reading can help.
