PERMANENT is one of the most beautiful printed matters I've come across recently.
They talk about food and dining culture, thinking from everyday dining scenes and focus on things like how and where what we eat are made or produced and who are involved behind it. Stories based on interviews with the food producers, tea makers and coffee roasters, and ordinary family homes with great photographs, incredible smiles of just some ordinary people in the small Japanese towns of Kyushu, it's all so good. All beautifully told with wonderful captures of real lives, nothing is styled but it's all real and beautiful. It makes me learn, think and smile (and hungry). It is all so inspiring!

They also make some excellent movies connected with contents of each issue. Here are some that I especially like, hope you enjoy them too!


TOKADO COFFEE - "The Roasting" version. From PERMANENT no.2


Lunch Time in Toho Village. From PERMANENT no.1


Breakfast in Kumamoto City. From PERMANENT no.2

You can see all the other amazing movies here.
And you can order your copy from my shop, both issues have just been restocked!

Oh, and Kinfolk has just launched the first issue of their Japan Edition! I haven't seen it yet but wonder what it's like to read Kinfolk in Japanese!
