Five years ago Monocle hit the newsstands. Today it’s at the heart of a very modern media company – but also one with some old-school values. The publication has evolved from having nineteen employees to over seventy now and representation in over 100 countries. The type of work they do ranges from print to video to radio. Yes, radio. Monocle also launched a television series on Bloomberg TV. Their reach is far and wide and the content is as rich and newsworthy in its 51st issues as it was back in issue 2007 when issue No. 1 hit newsstands. Here is a film that chronicles the first five years.
Here’s a look at Goodhood‘s seasonal print publication, the “Paper 2″ newspaper. There’s a ton of unique content in the mix including product highlights, cookbooks, staff picks and more.

You can grab the “Paper 2″ newspaper for free in-store and it will be shipped with every online purchase as well, though no telling when it will run out.
In the Fall/Winter 2011/12 issue of Fantastic Man, we came across this spread which sheds light on grey flannel and delivers some exceptional styling to boot. “”A True classic in menswear, grey flannel has all the qualities to create strong angular looks and make clothes look so elegant.” The editorial was captured by Paul Wetherell and styled by Jodie Barnes.

The other day, we were greeted with the latest issue of Rouleur Magazine at our doorsteps and through all the holiday festivities, we finally got a chance to check it out. For anyone not familiar, Rouleur is the ultimate publication for anyone interested in the sport of cycling. Road racing is a beautiful thing and so is this magazine as it focuses on amazing photography and writing.
Issue 21 digs deep and sheds light on people that make the sport move forward in a positive manner, like Juan Antonio Flecha of Team Sky and Brian Robinson, the winner of the 1961 Dauphiné Libéré. All-in-all, the mag’s a must-read for any biking enthusiast as it really well curated, something we don’t often see these days.
Issue 21 of Rouleur Magazine and other past issues are in stock now at Rapha.

Issue 33 of McSweeney’s Quarterly will be a one-time only, Sunday-edition-sized newspaper—the San Francisco Panorama. The edition gives a little bit of life back to what is otherwise a dying medium. It’ll have news and sports and arts coverage, and comics (sixteen pages of glorious, full-color comics, from Chris Ware and Dan Clowes and Art Spiegelman and many others besides) and a magazine and a weekend guide, and will basically be an attempt to demonstrate all the great things print journalism can (still) do, with as much first-rate writing and reportage and design (and posters and games and on-location Antarctic travelogues) as the team can get in there.
More sample shots from the San Francisco Panorama after the jump. (more…)
