Kinfolk Magazine Issue 39 (the Youth Issue) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. Individually formative and culturally formidable, youth looms large in the collective imagination. For those who can no longer be considered young, it is often rose-tinted with the memory of rebellion, irresponsibility and the short-lived belief that infinite futures lie just over the horizon. For those who are young today, the reality is a bit more complicated.
Kinfolk Magazine Issue 39 balances the open-faced optimism of youth with the sobering realities of growing up at a time when it can feel like the world is closing in rather than unfurling before you.
Plus: Interviews with designer Pierre Yovanovitch, author Nic Stone and Elise By Olsen – formerly the world’s youngest editor in chief.
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.
