Coffee table book 'The Monocle Book of Photography'
To mark the 15th anniversary of the influential magazine Monocle, there is now The Monocle Book of Photography, a coffee-table book of the finest photographs from the Monocle archive.
In 2007, the first copies of Monocle magazine were in newsstands and newsstands around the world. At its core was the promise to get all original photography done - capturing the world on film, on the spot and in the moment. The cover of that first issue featured a Japanese defense force helicopter pilot - photographed as part of a 10-day reportage assignment for both photographer and writer. In the years since, Monocle has continued to document the world through its unique lens - from embassies and residences to world leaders and cultural stars.
Each issue has a special photographic Expo section that celebrates lesser-known locations, obscure events and curious characters through outstanding photography. Wrestlers from the Alps, Syrian outposts, French legionnaires, noodle makers, game show presenters and private clubs have all graced the pages.
The Monocle Book of Photography contains the best of these photographic stories from an archive that was a decade and a half in the making. A beautiful linen-bound edition with glossy paper and printing of the highest quality, the book also includes supporting text about the photo commissions and the stories behind them, including first-hand testimonials from the photographers involved.
