Kinfolk Magazine Issue 29 is out now. Call Me By Your Name author André Aciman discusses the value—and values—inherent in literature; we meet creative director Frank Durand, who successfully revived the once-defunct Holiday magazine; and we learn the ancient art of calligraphy with Parisian artisan Nicolas Ouchenir. Elsewhere, we meet artist and actress Anh Duong in New York, examine the revolutionary history of self care, interview seminal photographer Shirin Neshat, novelist Elif Şafak and musician Benjamin Booker, philosophize on personal space, aphorisms and pepper, and learn how to sing a lullaby and hold a grudge.
Kinfolk is a slow lifestyle magazine published by Ouur that explores ways for readers to simplify their lives, cultivate community and spend more time with their friends and family. Founded in 2011, Kinfolk is now the leading independent lifestyle magazine for young creative professionals and also produces international editions in Japan, China, Korea and Russia. Published quarterly, Kinfolk maintains a vibrant contributor base from Copenhagen to Cape Town. 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.
With a dynamic mix of long-form journalism, interviews and shorter essays, plus concept-driven visual stories and contributors across the globe, the forthcoming issue of Kinfolk Magazine continues to dedicate its editorial to exploring personal values and quality of life.
