KINFOLK MAGAZINE VOL. TWENTY-NINE
Starting with its material parts—the aesthetic, tactile pleasures of paper and the power of the writt en word—we look at the various other ways in which printed matt er stills matt ers: from the lost art of handwriting to the secret lives of bookshelves and to the design of passports—the very papers that determine one’s right to freedom.
Call Me By Your Name author André Aciman discusses the value—and values—inherent in literature; we meet creative director Frank Durand, who successfully revived the once-defunct Holiday magazine; and we learn the ancient art of calligraphy with Parisian artisan Nicolas Ouchenir.
Elsewhere, we meet artist and actress Anh Duong in New York, examine the revolutionary history of self care, interview Iranian photographer Shirin Neshat, Turkish novelist Elif Şafak and Ivorian stylist Louis Philippe de Gagoue, philosophize on personal space, aphorisms and pepper, and learn how to sing a lullaby and hold a grudge.
