This year’s edition of the Monocle Mediterraneo is out tomorrow (July 26), and here’s what you’ll find inside:
The third edition of Monocle’s summer newspaper, Monocle Mediterraneo, will launch on Thursday 26 July. Continuing Monocle’s investment in slow, intelligently designed media and global reporting, Monocle Mediterraneo 2012 will mark two years since the brand’s first foray into seasonal newspapers and the fifth newspaper in total.
On newsstands for eight weeks, Monocle Mediterraneo is 64 pages of strategic dispatches, sea-faring essays, wise words and fresh ideas designed to be read in the sun. The newspaper will be available at good newsstands, hotels, airports and retailers across the globe, with an increased distribution in Hong Kong, Sin- gapore and Thailand as well as the UK and the US this year. The number of subscribers for Monocle Medi- terraneo has more than doubled since 2011.
