New in: The Monocle Guide To Better Living

This is one of these rare, beautiful projects for which, in our humble opinion, there is only one suitable publisher than, indeed, Gestalten. To us Monocle couldn't team up with a better publisher for their first ever book. Full of writing, reports and recommendations for Better Coffee, Better Places to spend your Holiday, Better Places to Work, The Monocle Guide to Better Living is an instant smash-book-hit. Think of the magazine as you know it, but in the shape of a book. That is completely what it is. To stay in the Better atmosphere: you Better Believe you will be seeing many of these cheeky yellow fellows in book shelfs near you. And if you ask us you'd Better make sure your book shelf is one of them.

Spartan conditions at the HQ's of Facebook, AOL, Google, YouTube and others. Some don't even have laundry service or vegetable gardens at work... I know, we were shocked too.

WorkScape: cool or crazy?

Balancing on the thin line of cool and crazy, WorkScape focuses on the office environments of trailblazing companies from around the world - think: Google, Facebook, Monocle, YouTube, Urban Outfitters. Sure, stunning architecture and interior design are nearly mandatory. But how about company-run childcare, bike share programs, communal vegetable gardens, sandwich islands and Karaoke rooms? Will those make you think 'outside the box'? You be the judge.

Get ready for The Ride

Every now and then you see a new product, store or app and you think: "Wasn't that there already? Why not?" Same with The Ride, a book that focuses on those who are creating customized motorcycles that come as close to one's own vision of how pure riding should be as possible. A passionate subculture, visual awesomeness & Gestalten: get ready for The Ride!

"Ze bellen mij als ze bijvoorbeeld een nieuw boek van Erwin Olaf of Marc Lagrange hebben. Daar zijn er maar een paar van. Dan hoef ik het zelf niet in de gaten te houden."

New in: Nendo 

http://mendo.nl/books/nendo

This is one of those 320 page reasons why spreading the love for books is such an utter pleasure. Nendo is all about the eponymous Japanese design studio that was founded in 2002 by Oki Sato. This book is a comprehensive monograph of the studio's work so far. Nendo is not only setting the tone in Japan, but is influencing the future of design on a global scale, with one main characteristic: simplification. Is that synonymous for boring? No sir. This kind of simplification is synonymous for sophistication on the highest possible level. We're so excited about this book, we're not even going to make insinuations about the agency's name.
