Happy Birthday to my favorite magazine, Monocle, created by Tyler Brule’

My favorite magazine, Monocle, which bills itself as a ‘Briefing on global affairs, business, culture, and design’, is one year old this month. Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday Deaaaaaar Monocle, Happy Birthday to You!!

Monocle is the brainchild of Tyler Brule’, original founder of hip Wallpaper magazine, and later columnist for the Financial Times, and the International Herald tribune, of London.  I love how Monocle speaks to the citizen of the world in me. Non ethnocentric, intelligent, unique, original, and aesthetically delightful, Monocle is the ONE magazine I read which, in journalistic terms, compares well to the world’s best English language newspapers, in photographic terms is as delightful as the best design mags, and in terms of insider tips for the discriminating business traveler tops everything on the market today in that category.

Beyond the enormous enjoyment I get from reading each issue of Monocle, I love the way the magazine embodies many of the tenets of The Velocity Factor. The magazine emanates velocity in it’s intelligence, design excellence, attention to detail, and prescience in terms of anticipation of consumer tastes.

You can find Monocle at your local Barnes & Noble in North America, and on numerous news stands in the UK and Europe, as well as via subscription (which includes access to the company’s password protected web site monocle.com.).
