        The title of the first Monocle book The Monocle Guide to Better Living may sound a bit presumptuous, but its content certainly isn’t. I would consider my life to be pretty good. So do I need a pages thick guide that tells me how I should live a better life? The closest restaurant to the Capitol building,United States Senate and Union Station, The Monocle is not only known as a Washington institution, but also for its fine American cuisine. You can always count on being served great crab-cakes, grilled fresh fish, steaks and chops, while enjoying the powerful political scenery/5(1K).

        Since it launched in , London-based Monocle went from a thinking person's magazine to a global lifestyle brand with product collabs and a fleet of luxe coffee table books under its name. And now they're expanding the latter even further with The Monocle Book of Japan, due out May 19 and available to pre-order now. Through striking photography, The Monocle Guide to Cosy Homes also gives you a glimpse into the lives that unfold in these apartments, villas, and cottages, showing that these homes are alive and that this is precisely what makes them special. This is a book that should be referred to again and again--it is a book about the quality of life File Size: KB.
