Excuse me, I am looking for an issue of Kinfolk magazine, - I asked a guy in my favorite bookshop. A Kinfolk magazine? We don't have a magazine! But we have a book, - he added after some hesitation. The website said you had a magazine. - I barely ever speak to strangers, let alone confront them, but finding Kinfolk in the labyrinth of post-Christmas city by -20 degrees was a difficult quest and I was not giving up.
