Monocle, first published in February 2007 is a global briefing covering international affairs, business, culture and design. Headquartered in London with bureaux in Tokyo, Sydney, Zürich and New York. It is published 10 times a year with frequent online updates on their website. The publication started by Canadian journalist and entrepreneur Tyler Brûlé. Brûlé was the one behing Wallpaper* when it started in 1996 in London - which also happens to be another one of my favorite publications. What draws me to Monocle is its diverse content targeted towards an urbanite. In brief Monocle was developed for an international audience hungry for information across a variety of sectors, Monocle’s team of award-winning editors and correspondents have been drawn from The New York Times, The Independent on Sunday, the BBC, CBC and a host of other news and current affairs outlets. I highly recommend gazing through the site or printed pages if your any sort of rennesance man or woman.
