Long Live Paper | 2020

Long Live Paper | 2020

I am writing this post somewhat begrudgingly because, honestly, I don't even know if I will subscribe to all three of these paper subscriptions or if I even have the time to read them. Since none of my 2020 Long Live Paper subscriptions are free like in previous years, I must choose wisely. Last year I took a hiatus from paper subscriptions so that I could focus on reading more books and writing my own, but I found myself still missing the casual read and there were 3 papers that kept catching my eye.

In this post, I share the 3 periodicals to which I am strongly considering subscribing, their prices, and what I like about them.

WHY TEA END BLOG? | I have been obsessing over this magazine for years and every now and then I purchase a single issue that gets my attention. Let me just say this: I am never disappointed. Kinfolk is a quarterly publication that is also aesthetically pleasing in a simple way. It shows that the creatives behind Kinfolk take their time to curate the articles as they are very practical and encouraging.

I have found motivation, great recipes, work advise, and inspiration on the pages of Kinfolk. Every time I pick up this magazine, the simple design and velvety paper slows down time and prepares my mind for reflective content. This periodical certainly meets my standards for great leisure reading and it has all 5 characteristics of a magazine that I would love.
