Monocle -the magazine that covers urbanism
and city design like no other -knows
about the hidden gems in all the great cities.
It also knows where to take an ambassador
for breakfast, an on-the-go business partner
for a late-night cocktail, or where to get an
astute concierge at ungodly hours. Its deep
understanding of cities, and all they have to
offer, has now been compiled in The Monocle
Travel Guide Series.
The series launched in spring 2015 with
editions for London, New York, Tokyo,
and Hong Kong. This autumn they will be
joined by Singapore, Istanbul, Madrid, and
Portland, Oregon. These beautiful informative
books reveal the Monocle team’s favorite
places, from the ideal route for an early
morning run to the best spots for independent
Aimed at people who do not want to be
tourists but rather feel like locals when
they travel, these are books for those who
want to mix the classic with the contemporary,
want to get beyond the clichÃ©s, and
know they can get a feel for a city even if
they only have a few days to spare.
And they are full of surprises and quirks:
the books will direct you to a grand hotel
but also to a cozy two-star, and will leave
you drinking in a neighborhood corner
bar or being served by a great waiter who
knows his craft. Each book also contains a
series of city essays and perspectives.
Created by the Monocle design team,
these authoritative guides are trim enough
to drop into your pocket and wise enough to
stay by your side throughout your travels
