KINFOLK ISSUE TWELVE: THE SALTWATER ISSUE Kinfolk's Summer 2014 edition will explore the world’s oldest and most used seasoning while also looking at it—and us—in its natural habitat: the sea.
Instead of the stereotypical nostalgic summer issue full of things we’ve covered already (swimming, surfing, hammocks, etc.), this issue will focus not only on our salty theme but also on encouraging people to get outside and be spontaneous in the warm weather. Sunlit, euphoric photo essays will be accompanied by salty commentary and social history: Think of it as a summer issue with a seasoning of culture.
We’d love for our readers to walk—or swim—away from this issue with a few of things on their minds: to take themselves less seriously, to not be afraid to try something new, to flow with the tides (or to push against them at the right moment) and, most importantly, to build a sandcastle and have some fun. This issue’s double-barreled concept will provide the readers both with a carefree outlook and a solid backbone of research, food culture and dinner-table conversation. Care to put your toes in? The saltwater’s warm.
