i asked for a subscription to kinfolk this year. it`s become a sort of accessory; something you see in cool outfit photos clutched possessively in the hand, or lightly adorning some table or shelf in a covetable interior. it`s published in japanese as well and it`s easy enough to find here, but english copies are a bit fewer and farther between. i spent almost 3000¥ for the last one i bought myself - it was sold as an import in an upscale select shop (united arrows). honestly the photography layout, the typeface and the clean design makes life feel airy, light and uncomplicated. i could use more of that.
