Introducing Kinfolk

IMG_8121

I was just browsing Kinokuniya few weeks back when I chanced upon this relatively new magazine; Kinfolk that hails from the States. i like the slogan of the magazine – A Guide For Small Gatherings. But what really caught my attention at the start was the images featured in the magazine. There’s something therapeutic about syncing two things; ice cream my true love and flowers into one picturesque treat. It’s an eye feast for me. But that’s not all. The writings on the mag is so intimate and full-of-heart. It seems as though they are writing to old friends, and I sure feel like an old friend reading the letters from the good people at Kinfolk. Kinfolk is a quarterly mag that caters to the young artists and food enthusiasts. Each (144 paged) magazine is packed with ‘lyrical essays, recipes, interviews, personal stories and practical tips with a keen attention to design and details’ and more. Some articles make you wanna get up and do something, some reminds you of things past, some make you crave for a particular food(and teaches you how to make it), it’s magic. And our folks at Kinfolk make it their mission to fill in the gap at newsstands, so you can be assured that every issue is quality and bang for your buck.

Learn something new, do something different. Their writings is like poetry to me, I love every image and articles they have to feature. It’s actually quite hard to entice me with magazines because I have a very and I mean very, exclusive taste bud, only a select few have captured my attention thus far. Yet, I devoured Kinfolk in less than a week..! The price is pretty steep at SGD $30.98 (Kinokuniya), a total one up from the already expensive magazines I follow but hey, you got to pay for good content right? And what makes it even better is the contents are ‘evergreen’ (means you will still enjoy it five years later) and makes for good conversation and activities starter. Congrats Kinfolk, you got yourself a new follower. Oh I will quit talking and let the images do the talking. By the way, their next issue will be released June 4!

Other magazines I follow: Frankie (Australia)(SGD $15.90) // Oh Comely (UK)(SGD $17.90)

The folks at Kinfolk separated the magazine into three parts in whole; Entertaining For One, Entertaining For Two, Entertaining For Few. Each part is unique on its own and yet combined together makes this a totally apt magazine. Enhance the experience by attempting the activities with a partner or few.

Ice cream is both a time of day and a dessert.
Like tea, it is both a snack between meals and something to finish off dinner.

As the saying goes, “Man don’t need a lot of revelation, man just need a lot of reminders. I’m inspired and reminded to do something different.
