Meet 40 of the World's Most Creative Entrepreneurs With Kinfolk's New Book

By Julia Brenner
The respected publication's new book chronicles an impressive list of entrepreneurs from around the world who have turned "visionary ideas" into professional success stories.

From Nathan Williams and the team behind the best-selling Kinfolk series (The Kinfolk Home and The Kinfolk Table) comes The Kinfolk Entrepreneur, an intimate look at the professional journeys of successful visionaries in design, publishing, architecture, fashion, hospitality, and business.  

The book takes readers through over 300 pages (and 200 stunning photographs) documenting the successes, setbacks, and sources of motivation for over 40 global creative leaders, while also providing a separate chapter dedicated to "tips, advice, and inspiration for anyone looking to forge their own path in life."

Though a diverse group of individuals is featured, they each share a common thread of having forged professional paths that are creatively and personally sustaining, such as Francesca Bonato, cofounder of the industry leading hospitality and lifestyle brand Coqui Coqui, and Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci, founders of Dimore Studio (pictured below).

The inspiring interviews featured throughout the book offer vivid insight into everything from conceptual and artistic philosophies to workspaces and work habits, as well as the equally formative failures and setbacks experienced by many of these industry leaders.

Insightful, authoritative, intimate, and inspirational, The Kinfolk Entrepreneur is both a useful resource and a beautifully crafted work. It's a balanced mix of information and aesthetics—the type of book you can learn from, feel inspired by, and offer as a gift to the creative entrepreneurs in your life.
