Okay, question time…who has heard of (or read) the American-made magazine FOLK?
I know, we’re Canadian and we LOVE Canada. But many of you are American. So we thought it would be okay to have a look at this American-made magazine. Make sense?!
If you’ve never heard of it, or didn’t know, FOLK is released 6 times per year. Issue VII marks the launch of their second full year in print (Happy Birthday!). They strive to support American small business, American production, and entrepreneurship. And they are quickly becoming ‘the’ American-made magazine! Subscriptions are $25 and can be purchased via paypal or check/money-order.
After previewing the Autumn 2012 issue, I’ve just got to share some of my favourite things about FOLK with you:
The Photos. Oh my goodness! The eye candy is sensational. From the breath-taking nature shots to the creatively-shot recipes to the totally doable DIYs, FOLK is FULL of beautiful photographs.
A little bit of Canada. One of our favourite bloggers, Donna (yes, of Funky Junk fame), writes for FOLK. In this issue, she shows step-by-step how to make curtain rods – from PIPES! #industrialgorgeousness!
- The Recipes. To be honest, I don’t normally like recipes in my ‘pretty’ magazines (I know, so random). BUT I have to say that the Roasted Peach Sherbet, Autumn Pumpkin Bars, Thin Pear Tart and CARAMEL JAR (um, yum!) in the Autumn 2012 issue have me convinced I need to get cooking! Like NOW!
The Ads. Yes, I said the ads. I want to go and visit every single website and shop because the ads are so pretty. For reals! You’ve got to see them.
The Time Worn Pumpkin DIY. I. want. to. make. this.
The Storytelling. And the story telling through photography. Like the story of Jeanne Oliver’s vintage-inspired handbag collection. STUNNING!
SO MUCH MORE. I could go on, but I want you to see for yourself!
I think this is going to quickly become one of my favourite magazines!
