Reading through the most recent issue of PDN there was an article written by Julian Rodriguez that caught my eye. The article talks about Monocle magazine launched in 2007 (which I have to say I hadn't heard of) by the same founders of Wallpaper*. The exciting information is that the magazine has nearly 300 photographs in every issue... more proof that print is still kicking and not going anywhere. The beauty is the images range from photo journalistic to fashion and every genre in between.
The magazine is arranged in an A to E format, organizing stories under Affairs, Business, Culture, Design, and Edits. It's geared to "international jet-setting readers" and keeps the photography and design on par with the writing.
Photo Director, Rose Percy, says in the PDN article, "whoever gets sent on photo assignment to interpret the story must understand the Monocle brand and deliver the right artwork." She also states that she is very open to emerging artists and new talent to consider.
