Monocle launches winter edition of its seasonal newspaper

Monocle, the global consumer publication that covers international affairs, business, culture and design, has launched a new winter edition of its supersized seasonal newspaper series. Titled Monocle Alpino, the 72-page colour tabloid will be on newsstands from 16 December for eight weeks. Monocle Alpino will have a bigger pagination, print run and distribution, due to the success of the brand’s debut summer paper, Monocle Mediterraneo, in July this year. Edited by the London team, the issue focuses on everything at 1500m up, including investigative reports from Alpine nations, essays and dispatches to read fireside, architects to build mountain retreats, and a guide to cosy winter dishes – along with a spring fashion preview. Monocle Alpino will exist in both print and online formats. Priced at £4.00, Monocle Alpino will hit newsstands at airports and resorts prior to the Christmas break and remain for on sale for eight weeks – or the length of the ski season.
