Monocle Cover

Suggesting that media now really is global, I read about (Wallpaper founder and expat Canadian) Tyler Brúlé’s new magazine Monocle on André Ribeirinho’s weblog and then, two days later, found it on the newsstand at Indigo here in Charlottetown.

I’ve only begun to make my way through the first issue — it’s huge — but on first blush it seems to be a cross between The New Yorker and COLORS. The design and organization of the printed magazine and the Monocle website are very compelling. I’ll report back after I’ve finished the issue, but early signs are positive.
