Gestalten and Monocle cordially invite you to the international launch of The Monocle Guide to Better Living. For its first-ever book, the Monocle editorial team looks at one of its favorite themes: how to live well. Full of writing, reports, and recommendations, The Monocle Guide to Better Living is original, informative, entertaining and comprehensive. This is not a book about glitz but rather an upbeat survey of products and ideas built to treasure and last.
Join us for an evening with Tyler Brûlé and Andrew Tuck and meet the Monocle editorial team.
NOTE: We're very sorry to say that we've reached our maximum capacity for tonight's event. Unfortunately, this means that we have now officially closed our guest list.
About the book
Monocle is one of the most successful magazines to be developed in the past decade. Armed with an unmistakable sense of aesthetics and journalistic tenacity, its team—led by editor in chief Tyler Brûlé—has created an intelligent publication that continually inspires a global readership who are interested in everything from diplomacy to design. For its first-ever book, the editorial team looks at one of their core themes: how to live well.
Structured into chapters on the city, culture, travel, food, and work, the book also provides answers to some key questions. Which cities offer the best quality of life? How do you build a good school? How do you run a city? Who makes the best coffee? And how do you start your own inspirational business?
The Monocle Guide to Better Living works as a guide but also includes essays that explore what makes a great city, how to make a home and why culture is good for you. Read more.
