Monocle World Tour Begins

September: Europe & Asia
Posted by Gestalten—09/2013

The book launch tour of The Monocle Guide to Better Living just kicked off in Berlin last week! Many thanks to everyone who joined us for the premier launch party with Tyler Brûlé, Andrew Tuck, and the Monocle team at Gestalten Space last Thursday. If you missed the evening, click here to view photos of the event.

Gestalten is very proud to release Monocle's first-ever book: The Monocle Guide to Better Living. This is not a book about fashion or the next big thing, but enduring values—from a career you want to keep to furniture that will last a lifetime. It’s a book designed to stay relevant, loved, and used. An indispensable guidebook to contemporary life, it embodies everything that makes the magazine such a success: easy style and journalistic substance.

Starting in September, we will be going on a world tour with Monocle to celebrate the book's release in many exciting cities around the world. This month we will be hitting London, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Singapore!

World Tour Schedule:
Sept 5 - Berlin at Gestalten Space
Sept 10 - London at Midori House (By invitation only)
Sept 11 - Amsterdam at America Book Center
Sept 14 - Tokyo at Tsutaya Daikanyama
Sept 15 - Hong Kong at Monocle Shop
Sept 16 - Bangkok at Asia Books
Sept 17 - Singapore at Kinokuniya Book Shop

More dates will be announced soon. Stay tuned!
