Monocle said that the new launch combines “confidence in print as an exciting, desirable format with its belief in continuous product innovation”.
It is edited in London and printed in Bolzano, Italy.
Editor in chief Tyler Brule said: “Monocle – The Summer Weekly is our latest adventure in ink and paper.
“Everyone is very down about newspapers but there is something very exciting about this form. You don’t mind if it gets a bit of suncream on it, or if it gets waterlogged. It can follow you around for the day – or for the week. We thought that August was the perfect time to let people dive into this again.”
Monocle marked its tenth birthday earlier this year and has a global circulation of around 80,000.
