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.
SPARK – Magical pickles & homemade gifts. Cosy hearths. The people who cheer us up. Sweet chestnut traybake and Cattern cakes. Why we love corduroy. How to speak up and out. Wool graffiti. Firelight, fungi & fortune telling
All you need is a spark. A spark is an idea that you can kindle and grow. It takes time and tending but your warm glow, when it catches hold, will come from within. And the calm month of November offers the slow-burn space needed to think and create. Homemade gifts, an afternoon spent pickling, or just pondering and planning, are all welcome pastimes when the skies darken and the nights grow longer. However, if you prefer your sparks and fires real rather than metaphorical, autumn delivers those, too. A season for all wo(men) then – you can smell the woodsmoke already.
