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.
Blossom – Flying kites. Slow cooked spring stew. Good pencils & craft beer. The joy of a mix tape. Parisian spring punch. Women who collect textiles. How to draw a portrait. Fig & walnut scones. Why we love a reading nook.
Letting an idea blossom and grow is not always easy to do. We’re tempted to act now, make it happen, force it into existence. But sometimes, letting something gradually unfurl means when it eventually bursts forth and blooms it will be the stronger for it. Taking time to notice and observe – whether it is learning a little of another’s language or customs or understanding the clothes they wear – brings new life and perspectives to our ideas. Then, like a kite catching the wind, they can take flight and soar.
