The book offers multifaceted perspectives on the world of work today and in the future--from compelling business ideas to inspiring company cultures. Ever since the launch of Monocle in 2007 this highly successful global magazine and media brand has championed a clear and new take on the world of work It has encouraged its readers to start their own businesses, do the thing that makes them feel fulfilled (even if it means ditching a comfortable corporate salary), and find places to build their HQ that deliver a good quality of life too. The magazine's belief in making things (and making them well), using your hands, doing an apprenticeship, and keeping things small and tight has linked perfectly with a community of entrepreneurs who are determined to find their own way in the world --and know that this will allow them to run their lives in new and fresh ways. These developments are also expressed in the maker movement, new shared spaces, and unusual business schools. So it was a natural step for the magazine's team to create The Monocle Guide to Good Business. This guide is not your traditional business book, but it does give advice on how to go from clever fledgling idea to success story and introduces people with inspiring stories. The Monocle Guide to Good Business is also a picture-rich journey for anyone who runs a company, wants to run a company, or wishes their boss had some new ideas It will even tell you why you need an office dog. From the best business neighborhoods to the sturdiest desks, this book will have you planning a new career --or at least fixing your office. It's a book that should be thumbed and used.

What characteristics and values define a country? Which countries are particularly successful in terms of education, economics, or culture? In this book, Monocle provides a global perspective on the distinct qualities of nations. Monocle's books with Gestalten have shown you how to build a better life, business, and home. But now Monocle raises the bar: how do you run a great country? They are not talking about might, muscle, or nationalism --although you need a bit of a swagger every now and then. They are talking about a country that feels like a cohesive community, knows what to value, and goes out into the world to gently get its way with soft power, fine ambassadors, and compelling cultural offerings. At home, this country celebrates good education, well-made institutions, and its own people and their skills. How to Run a Nation: A Monocle Guide is a thought-provoking primer that informs and inspires. The best ideas don't need to be invented --they need to be found and copied. Let Monocle be your guide.

In this brand-new book, Monocle reveals not only its 100 favourite hotels but also how you could start number 101 on its list with a wealth of advice and insight into what owning and running a perfect establishment involves.

We push past the colourful chaos and Frida Kahlo merchandise to find the city's tastiest tacos and the retailers breathing new life into classic crafts. Quesadillas sizzling on street corners outside cosy coffee shops; mariachi in sequined sombreros serenading late-night revellers; tower blocks casting long shadows over baroque churches and Aztec ruins studded with cacti. Mexico City simultaneously conforms to every stereotype and challenges every preconception with shameless self-assurance. Unconventional, ever-changing and utterly beguiling, this megalopolis is an endless parade of sights, sounds and smells. It somehow manages to feel intimate despite its gargantuan size but good guidance is still essential - and this is where the Monocle Travel Guide to Mexico City steps in. We lead you to our favourite mural-splashed buildings and the best places in which to practise your salsa - ending up in a dimly lit mezcal bar or two for good measure. If you're going to pay a visit to the Mexican capital, this is a good place to start. All that's left to do is dust off your dancing shoes and join the fiesta. Órale, amigos!

If the goal were to build a house in which everyone would like to live, the architect would likely be Italian, the engineer maybe German, the gardener probably British, and the craftspeople either Swiss or Japanese. The interior designer of that house, though, should - beyond any doubt - be from Scandinavia. Northern Delights reveals why hardly any other interior or product design is so timeless, so functional, so aesthetic, and of such high quality as that of Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Denmark. The book's stunning selection of Scandinavian design ranges from individual products to skillfully staged living spaces. Although it also presents iconic designs, the book focuses on the work of young talents who are consciously building upon local sustainable design traditions and further developing them in a way that is consistent, intelligent, and reflects an unerring sense of style. Northern Delights showcases classic, minimal, rustic, and pop styles that are united by their simplicity, functionality, and love of light. The included examples show how the grains of different woods, the clarity of colored glass, the cheery colors of fabrics and patterns, and the overall quality of craftsmanship contribute to creating simple, inviting, and very comfortable spaces. Whether the featured work was created for residences, offices, or any other rooms, in a Scandinavian interior, everyone feels at home.
