 ELEMENTS: in pursuit of the wild 

Published by: Lannoo

Publication Date: November 2020

Hardcover, 240 pages

The stories in this book explore the theme of elements; frozen seas crashing onto charcoal sand, deserted landscapes disappearing beneath swathes of rolling mist and lava erupting from smoking volcanoes.

Through ‘Elements’, we discover these are places that cannot be defined or described in a phrase or sentence, constrained to a single image. These are places that need to be felt; to be showcased and explored, a connection with their wild beauty unearthed. Divided into four parts, the visual and written stories in this book portray the raw, unrelenting power of earth, air, fire and water. With dramatic photography and captivating narratives from locations such as Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Scotland and the Pacific Northwest, the purpose of these pages is to amaze and enthral; to inspire awe and wonder at the beautifully terrifying world around us.

 The Kinfolk Home

 

368 pages, including 289 full-colour photographs.

Published by Artisan Books.

Publication date: October 20, 2015.

The Kinfolk Home welcomes readers into 35 homes around the world that reflect some of the key principles of slow living: cultivating community, simplifying our lives and reclaiming time for what matters most.

With 289 full-colour photographs spanning 368 pages, The Kinfolk Home is a detailed exploration into living spaces from the United States, Scandinavia, Asia and more.

Through a mix of portrait and interior photography, profiles and essays, we visit the homes of designers, entrepreneurs, architects, photographers and stylists. Delving deeper than decor, author Nathan Williams invites each resident to share their values, the ways those ideals have shaped their homes and the ways their homes have in turn shaped them.  At the heart of each living space is an aesthetic shaped by the dweller’s idea of what is essential—whether it’s a collection of inherited French antiques, a table long enough for a dinner party of a dozen, a smattering of children’s sketches posted on the walls or minimalist rooms reserved for creative thought. What each of these homes shares in common is that they’ve been put together carefully, slowly, and with intention.

 The Kinfolk Table 

Hardcover with dust jacket, 368 un-coated pages.

Published by Artisan Books.

Publication date: October 15, 2013.

The Kinfolk Table puts the emphasis back on the relationships that surround eating. One-third cookbook, one-third narrative tale and one-third international adventure, The Kinfolk Table is a collection of 85 delectable recipes spread over 368 pages from creative types around the world including Brooklyn, Copenhagen, Canada and the English countryside.

Filled with gorgeous photography and design you’re used to seeing in the magazine, the book will inspire your next small gathering. We travelled around the world, sharing food and collecting ideas from our growing community of chefs, home cooks, designers, bloggers, photographers and others, many of whom contributed recipes to The Kinfolk Table. 

Some of the suggestions are refreshingly simple, like throwing freshly harvested mussels on the grill or filling half a cantaloupe with yoghurt and honey. Others may take a little more time and patience, such as Ginger Ice Cream with Kumquat Compote or perfecting a shoulder of veal. Danish, Japanese, Mexican and Korean influences make appearances too, as do fresh takes on classics such as Sweet Potato-Quinoa Burgers, Kimchi Couscous or Spiced Raw Chocolate Mousse.
