The Monocle Travel Guides provide inside knowledge on the most exciting cities in every country, delivered by one of the world’s global affairs powerhouses. With 150 pages full of brilliantly designed info, illustration and photography, the guides are made for losing yourself in the most faraway places – while knowing exactly where to go. Here’s how Bulang and Sons came to locate and sell these travel guide gems.

Everyone who travels on the regular and takes an interest in design, architecture, style and many other aspects of modern urban life will have come across Monocle at some point or other. Ever since 2007, this high-class magazine reports ten times a year on global affairs, business, culture and much more, often taking interesting and intriguing viewpoints while presenting beautiful pictures and streamlined layouts in quality print.

Monocle lives a truly international mindset and thus commands its own network of offices in Hong Kong, Istanbul, New York, Tokyo, Toronto, Singapore and Zurich. The magazine also employs over 30 dedicated correspondents – in cities like Bangkok, São Paolo or Stockholm, no less – and a team of on-the-road reporters based at the headquarters in London. All of this huge and versatile team’s thorough knowledge of cities and everything they have to offer comes together in the volumes of the Monocle Travel Guide Series.

The Monocle Travel Guides lead you to top-notch places to dine and drink, magazine-spread-ready homeware and fashion retailers and the must-see museums and galleries. These handy books point out the architecture and infrastructure gems that best illustrate what makes a particular city an exciting metropolis absolutely worth a visit. The locally experienced editors who work on these exclusive Travel Guides also reveal their favourite neighbourhoods and the latest insider spots that are not on every traveler’s agenda – yet.

As the Monocle Travel Guides are published in close collaboration with Berlin’s Gestalten publishing house – from which we are already stocking the amazing books ‘Porsche 911 – The Ultimate Sportscar as Cultural Icon’ and ‘Scandinavian Dreaming – Nordic Homes, Interiors and Design’ – they not only provide a cornucopia of usable information for traveling in every city. They are also designed and printed to please the discerning eye: Every volume of the Monocle Travel Guide series is bound in hardcover and features 148 full color pages that follow a practically-minded editorial structure. The language is English.
