This is basically a re-hash of articles from old back issues. I was expecting a hefty tome of new photos, articles, features and completely fresh material. What a disappointment. Nice binding, good paper stock, crisp font choices and a good layout sadly don't make up for the lack of new content. If you've been an avid reader of Monocle for the past 5 years or so you will probably recognise 80% or more of the content. If you keep all your back issues then don't bother. No doubt it will sell bucket loads.
