Kinfolk Issue Twenty-One

$18

Introducing the Home Issue

Within the pages of the 21st issue of Kinfolk, the home becomes more than the sum of its walls and floors, chairs and wallpaper—more than a collection of objects.

We delve deeply into the very nature of home, exploring what’s hidden, unseen, mysterious and sensual. And we look into what we have forgotten or overlooked in the rituals of our daily lives. In turn, the home and everything it contains are not merely ends in themselves, but the complex elements of each person’s evolving and deeply personal narrative—the foundations of a well-lived life.
