Monocle loves analogue

Monocle cover
I was in Instanbul a couple of weekends ago – with four days of snow and snowball fights till 2am. The Blue Mosque and river front looked superb in the snow. My teenage son was wielding the camera – shooting on 35mm film with an old Nikon. You can’t drag him off his iPod to vinyl, but he much prefers the look of film.

So he’ll no doubt latch on to the latest Monocle – ‘Make mine an analogue’ is the main cover line. There’s no doubt the magazine has a love for the retro – it’s only a couple of issues ago that editor Tyler Brûlé was heralding a great future for newspapers.
