HASH(0x93bd8c84) von 5 Sternen Inconsistent content 7. Dezember 2013
Von Marie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoy supporting independent magazines and have been curious about Kinfolk for some time. However, since I'm slightly older than the magazine's stated target audience I hadn't bothered checking out Kinfolk. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that volume 10 would be dedicated to things that get better with time. There has been a lot of positive buzz online about this issue, so I decided to give it a try.

As many others have posted here and elsewhere, Kinfolk is a beautiful periodical. It is a sensory treat just to hold it and leisurely flip through pages of gorgeous photography and short essays on thick matte paper. I think the layout and overall approach to content are appealing to readers of all ages.

It's very refreshing to see a magazine about people who are aging gracefully and read mostly positive stories about what we can learn from older folks. Unfortunately, though, it didn't take long to see signs of ageist stereotyping in this issue. The first section features an article by the magazine's new editor about retirement pastimes that include complaining, feeding pigeons, and wearing Velcro. A subsequent article reminds readers that "Being old is hard work. All that pigeon feeding and bridge playing really takes it out of you." The first set of recipes shows soft foods "for those young and old who have no teeth;" one picture includes a set of dentures in a glass and another has one of those weekly medicine containers with pills and tablets scattered on the table. The subhead in a social story about pubs asks "Where else can a college kid nurse his happy hour pint while sitting alongside a geezer with two fingers of Scotch?". An article by Kinfolk's managing editor lists advice on how to feel older before reaching the golden years, to include going for walks ("grab a cane or stick to prepare for future use") and sitting on park benches ("[n]o need to feed the pigeons"). What's with all the mentions of feeding pigeons?

I'm not familiar enough with Kinfolk to know if the ageist material is their attempt at humor. I sure didn't find it funny. Thinking of all the elderly and retired people I know, I didn't find it realistic either. I have to wonder what the editors were thinking when they decided to include this content in an issue about getting better with time. I had high hopes for Kinfolk, but after this experience I won't bother with future issues.

HASH(0x93bd8ed0) von 5 Sternen This one missed the mark. 11. Dezember 2013
Von ErikaMichelle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I've began reading kinfolk this year, and their past magazines are much more interesting/rewarding. I'm glad this issue wasn't my first to read, because I think it may have been my last. I think all the sarcastic remarks mentioned in another review are attempts at humor, but there is just not enough meaningful content on the subject of aging in this issue to let the humor have it's place. Sometimes, I feel that our society turns aging into something to be afraid of, something to avoid for as long as you can-this issue seems to follow suite with that thinking. I was really hoping this issue was going to high-light the beauty in aging. Instead the sarcastic remarks seems to overshadow the original attempt at this issue, which I think was to focus on the art of aging-judging by the photography, happy at one hundred in particular. Hoping the future issues will get back to what this magazine does best-delivering meaningful, insightful content from unique angles, sprinkled with tongue-in-cheek-humor, and pairing it with stunning photography. this one, however, did not do that.

HASH(0x93bd8e94) von 5 Sternen Beautiful but hard to read... 19. Dezember 2013
Von Mary J. Oxrieder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a lovely magazine/book but I doubt if it was designed by anyone remotely experienced in getting older - as in 60-some, as I am. The font is so tiny its almost unreadable unless I have the best of light and my best reading glasses. And believe me, my eye sight is normally just fine. So I find myself picking it up, wanting to read it, then setting it down again. Really wish I hadn't wasted my money. However, thumbs up for no ads!

was disappointed, maybe expected dfferent....can't wrap my head around it, but it sure is not the most inspiring way of talking of aging people....there is so much more to life in our later stage of body and mind...sorry just don't like it.
