Magazine B Issue 60 (Monocle) is available now at LOREM (not Ipsum). Monocle is a London-based monthly publication featuring political, social, cultural and global issues through in-depth reporting by its correspondents around the world. Launched in 2007 by Tyler Brûlé, Monocle has also offered a series of books, newspapers and a radio channel that runs 24 hours a day. Monocle also operates shops and cafés to reach out to more readers. Its advertorial contents, created in collaboration with many brands, have provided a successful and steady source of revenue for the comprehensive media company.

After stumbling upon Monocle nearly 10 years ago on a trip in Europe, I can say that the publication greatly influenced my ambitions for B. The long and dense articles proved challenging, but browsing photos and articles from around the world on page still warm from the human touch of a cleanly printed publication filled me with an inexplicable joy that is absolutely unattainable when swiping on the palm- sized touchscreen of a smartphone. It was during those pivotal moments when I thought that the desire to own copies of print media and display them on a bookshelf—despite their decreasing popularity— is perhaps an undeniable instinct, as natural as the warmth of our bodies or the lure of the natural world.

Nowadays, when many people talk of the inevitable disappearance of print media or the analog era and tout the need to focus all of our attention on the new digital realm, I continually try to imagine a world in which warm sunlight and trees in gardens are just as valued as the realm of artificial intelligence and robots. Because regardless of which way we turn, I believe that both will co-exist so as to make our lives even more meaningful.
