For those who have been reading Monocle in the last years, the Edits section has been a good dose of inspiration on the best neighborhoods, hotels, restaurants, museums and shops in the four corners of the world. As such, it was a natural step to launch the new travel guides with german publisher Gestalten. Using the experiences of its vast network of editors and correspondents, Monocle launched a new genre of guides aimed at those who want to make the most of a city, even if the stay is short. Making travelers feel more like locals than tourists, the practical volumes are informative and informal, suggesting the best places to rest, stretch your legs or find an hard-to-find cocktail bar. Apart from the London guide, the best tool to know the charm and cultural diversity of the British capital, Monocle also launched one dedicated to New York, perfect to discover the best kept secrets of the big apple. We love it!
