Tyler Brûlé sacará una nueva revista llamada Monocle

De casualidad me he enterado de que Tyler Brûlé, el trend-setter y alma máter de Wallpaper*, sacará en breve una nueva revista, llamada Monocle.

Aquí está la nota de prensa en PDF: Monocle_ReleaseEng.pdf

Actualmente la web monocle.com dice esto:

We believe it’s time for a new, global, European based media brand. With a keen focus, strong reporting, sharp wit and more classic approach to design, we’ve dubbed our venture Monocle.

At the core there’s a monthly magazine delivering the most original coverage in global affairs, business, culture and design. Alongside, there’s a web-base broadcast component covering the same areas through a variety of bulletins, mini-documentaries and talk formats. Focus on informing and entertaining an international audience of disillusioned readers, listeners and viewers, it is our intention to create a community of the most interested and interesting people in the world.

Edited out of London, Monocle is staffed by a team pulled from the world’s leading news outlets, magazines and broadcasters. Conceived by Wallpaper* founder and Financial Times columnist Tyler Brûlé, the launch team calls on some of his old alumni and new talent from The Independent, the BBC, Branches of Condé Nast and a host of other news outlets. Versed in politics, popular culture, business affairs, media, architecture and design, the editorial team will cover the world from its London hub and dedicated bureaux in Tokyo, Zurich and New York. Monocle will be driven by offering original, never-before-seen content to an audience of well-heeled, intelligent opinion leaders around the world.

Conociendo el fetiche de Tyler Brûlé por todo lo sueco (y por extensión, escandinavo) y japonés, no sorprende que la nota de prensa se haya editado en tres idiomas: inglés, sueco y japonés.

Este es el aspecto actual de la web de Monocle a Noviembre 2006:
