My kind of magazine

IMG_7707 One magazine that I have been itching to buy is Kinfolk Magazine but as magazines go, it's a bit of a splurge so I've not been able to justify purchasing the magazine. Instead I've been an avid reader of the Kinfolk blog. However, as soon as I realised that the 8th issue was Japan themed, I didn't hesitate and put in an order straight away as I do have a love for all things Japanese. I'm so pleased I bought a copy as it's the most beautiful magazine, full of dreamy photography, beautiful design and interesting articles and printed on lovely thick paper. My favourites include the recipe for cherry blossom and black sesame macarons, an article about a couple of great Japanese phrases and Hideaki Hamada's photo-essay. It doesn't really feel like a magazine but rather, a beautifully put-together book. It's a pleasure to read and I think it's safe to say that I will find it much easier to buy further issues from now on...

  13. I love Kinfolk, it's so beautifully presented. I've only seen it here in the UK in Anthropologie, so I always have to hope they have some copies left xx

  18. Oh winnie you and I share so much in common! It's funny because Page One allows the 10% book discount on Kinfolk since it's not considered a magazine! I wanna borrow your copy- or maybe I'll just buy it again when I get back to HK- don't want it to weigh down my luggage going back (which is full of ketchup chips and graham crackers. Yes we don't have either in HK!)

  19. Gorgeous pictures! I've heard of Kinfolk magazine, but I saw the price and it kind of deterred me from purchasing it! However, it looks like a beautiful magazine! I may have to think of picking up a copy in the future! ^_^
