When nature lowers the dial on sunlight and heat, our moods can easily sink in unison. Winter is when Danish folks savor their tradition of hygge (pronounced “hyoo-guh”), which is a sense of coziness, comfort and belonging all wrapped up in one. Hygge exists in all candlelit rooms, convivial conversations and shared meals in Denmark. But everyone around the globe can enjoy the feeling of hygge—just curl up with a book, gather in the kitchen or cuddle a furry companion.
This biannual notecard collection is a practical extension of Kinfolk’s focus on cultivating community and nurturing friendships. Each edition of twelve notecards and envelopes showcases some of the most popular work from the talented international photographers featured in the magazine. In the same way that Kinfolk explores a theme within each issue, each notecard edition conveys a new concept through a fresh set of photographs. The second in the collection— The Hygge Edition—embodies the comforting Danish tradition of hygge. Packaged in a minimalist art board box, each edition includes twelve A2 folding cards with blank interiors, full-color cover photography and twelve blank envelopes.
