The Monocle team heads north in this celebration of all things 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 cliche´s 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 highlights the individual people, places, and products that show the Nordics in all their nuances, sharing the lessons we can all learn from makers in Norway’s high north, to the firms building bridges in Denmark or selling Swedish soft power abroad. Not to mention talent in Tallinn―yes, they even cross borders into the Baltics on their journey ―or retailers reaching higher in Reykjavi´k.
The world can learn a lot from these northern countries and The Monocle Book of the Nordics and Beyond is the ideal place to start.
