Not the Harvard-produced satire of the ’60s, Monocle reports the parts of international affairs, policy, culture and social trends that are relevant to people also interested in furniture design, exotic travel and development theory. If this is you, then you’ve just found a new reason to get up in the morning. Newly created by the same team originally responsible for Wallpaper*, reading Monocle will make yourself more interesting. A cosmopolitan internationalist look at the world – a magazine for the thinking person.
Monocle’s February issue is all about celebrating places that work, whether that’s a parliament, home or metro carriage. From a floating office to a school teaching children the rules of the road, we profile the locations that look good and work well for those who use them. Plus: Charleston’s hospitality boom and why you should learn Russian.
