Im probably going to ‘unfriend’ a few people by saying this, but Im not actually a big Monocle fan. Im a huge admirer of Tyler Brule and from an industry standpoint, I think Monocle is the best magazine out there, it’s just not my personal style, so don’t get me wrong. As all magazines are looking at more cost effective ways to print, Monocle may not be in the same financial position as a lot of magazines, infact its in the rare position of being in amongst a climb mode, but what has become popular in amongst this need for trend is expanding on the philosophy and theme of print being traditional and simple and publishers looking at ways to make a point over its worth over digital content. That might be overthinking it, because at the end of the day, the newspaper format of this summer issue of Monocle might just be a fun way to release some time relevant content.
