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.
How to replace a hug. A picnic under the apple trees.
Favourite tarts & quirky carpets. Surprising stories at stately homes.
End-of-summer lasagne & doughnut popcorn. Early bird or night owl?
Why we love an attic. Good mood foods.
Wiggle room for worms
Our sense of touch is powerful, so when permission to physically touch friends and family is taken away, we mourn it.
But the word has other meanings too – keeping in touch has never been more important, while a nice touch such as a jug of dahlias on the table can lift our spirits.
A touch of genius, when used for good, is inspiring, and there are many small ways to touch someone’s heart. In this state of ‘together, but separate’ that we are living in, being sociable and companionable will surely see us through.
September stands fornew beginnings and usually gives us a sense of purpose and a zeal for getting things done; this year, it’s OK to not know what happens next.
Living in the moment has been forced upon us but it may well be something we grow to embrace and appreciate.
