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.
We read to know we’re not alone, someone wise once wrote. And while being together is often about an actual gathering – enjoying fireworks, food and fun this month, for example – that connectedness we feel with others can also come through shared experiences. A book appreciated, an era remembered, spectacles of nature admired. Embrace time alone, too, in a space of your own, to make gifts and treats for the coming festivities. Relish that glow of satisfaction at something proudly homemade.
TOGETHER – November 2018 – issue 77
