Kinfolk: Creative Magazine Printing by Park
'REMAKE' PAPER25% leather
FOILED DETAILin black gloss
Many magazines mix up their stocks; this one tells a story in paper.
Popular lifestyle magazine Kinfolk approached Park for their thirty-sixth edition. Entitled ‘Movement’, it sets out to celebrate ‘the exceptional individuals using movement as a vehicle for physical prowess, self-expression and social cohesion.’
The magazine uses different papers to mark different sections: opening with a stylish uncoated stock, then springing into brilliant Galerie Gloss for the ‘Movement’ section, with features on dance, music and wildlife photography.
The final section, ‘Directory’, takes a turn to the philosophical. Off-white Remake, a 100% recycled product containing 25% leather spelt, plays host to monochrome photography, essays, and interviews with cultural figures.
Refined creative options lend the cover a certain elegance: tactile, soft-touch laminate, with the title in understated black gloss foiling.
The finished volume is a contemplative journey through photography and intellectual prose, with a book-like weightiness worthy of Kinfolk’s long-standing, global audience of collectors and fans.
We approached several printers, both in the UK and abroad, about printing Kinfolk. We chose Park because of their clear commitment to quality and their deep understanding of our, sometimes complicated, requirements for the finest printed products.
