Monocle – Issue 144
Monocle magazine is a global look at current affairs, business, culture and design, with articles on politics and business in Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas, news on global culture from cultural centres like Tokyo, Paris and London, and featuring inspiring designs. Published 10 times a year and with many fans of it's style and content, Monocle provides a close look at everything going on in the world.
Our jubilant June issue is an artful thing indeed. Not least for its dedicated survey on the best auctions, gallery openings, studios and collectors sculpting the creative scene. We also eye up Iraq’s unlikely tourism play, profile the folks behind Japan’s will-they-won’t-they Olympics and get a first look at LVMH’s stunning makeover of an iconic Parisian department store. There’s also a transport theme speeding through the issue, from our exploration of the future of flight and choice insights on supersonic travel and e-planes to the urban infrastructure improvements we’re betting on and insights into the fast-escalating business of lifts. Not to mention recommendations, recipes and fresh reporting aplenty.
