By this time, I imagine most people will have heard of Kinfolk Magazine, but I can’t resist giving it a mention too. This is also due to the fact that I’m about to bake banana loaves on a rainy day.
Kinfolk’s manifesto, reads:
Kinfolk is a growing community of artists with a shared interest in small gatherings. We recognize that there is something about a table shared by friends, not just a wedding or once-a-year holiday extravaganza, that anchors our relationships and energizes us. We have come together to create Kinfolk as our collaborative way of advocating the natural approach to entertaining that we love.
Every element of Kinfolk – the features, photography, and general aesthetics – are consistent with the way we feel entertaining should be: simple, uncomplicated, and less contrived. Kinfolk is the marriage of our appreciation for art and design and our love for spending time with family and friends.
The design of the magazine, (which is open to everyone here) mirrors the spirit of the concept entirely. It is extremely beautifully executed and filled with images of peaceful get togethers that evoke a strong yearning to connect with nature.
