Following up on our earlier post "the vintage years" (and generally, re-branding woman’s magazines) I came across this new publication that celebrates life in a more realistic, positive and creative way.
The new and independent Kinfolk Magazine just published its “Aged Issue,” which focuses on generations that are often forgotten about in the media: older people who have stories, wisdom and knowledge to spare.
Focusing on cooking, craft, the outdoors and features on real people doing interesting things, the edition is absolutely fantastic. The issue contains rituals of the past and thoughts on the future. One article talks about that inevitable day you realize you’re turning into your mother, while another reflects on the way life, like fruit, is about picking that perfectly ripe moment.
The magazine does such an amazing job at confronting topics that all media and magazines tend to avoid.
While many magazines pressurize readers to hang on to youth, Kinfolk investigates how our lives are enriched by the people, meals and traditions of things past.
