The Monocle Book of the Nordics and Beyond

The Monocle Book of the Nordics and Beyond

The Monocle team headsnorth in this celebration of allthings Nordic. This heavily illustrated book from Monocle is a celebration of the Nordic region, featuring some surprises, quirks--and maybe a sauna or two-- along the way. Monocle's journalists, editors, and photographers have returned time and again to all corners of northern Europe for insights, inspiration, and ideas for living better. This book isn't about hammering the overhyped hygge trend or fussing over foamy food. Much the opposite--it's about a shared but distinct set of values that have helped these nations excel in quiet diplomacy, thoughtful design, and reasoned debate. Monocle looks beyond the clichés and uncovers the people, companies, and stories that help the Nordic region rank highly in everything from art and architecture to eating well. Far from lumping these different nations together, the Monocle team will highlight the people, places and products that show the Nordics in all their nuances: lessons we can all learn from makers in Norway's high north or retailers reaching higher in Reykjavík; the firms building bridges in Denmark or selling Swedish soft power abroad. The world can learn a lot from these northern countries and The Monocle Book of the Nordics is the ideal place to start.
