The founder of Wallpaper magazine, Tyler Brûlé, has announced he’s got a new baby in the works. Monocle, to be launched mid-February, “will feature a mix of stories on global affairs and geopolitical issues, as well as culture, design, fashion and consumer goods” according to WWD.
Brûlé says publications must rise to the challenge that the competition from new media presents:
“I’m so tired of hearing from all corners of the media that print is dead. Well, it’s not. It’s a time when magazines should be pulling up their socks and turning out more fabulous, more confident, more robust products.”
