I think, as contents page, this page is really strong on the design front. The simple colours of black and white go well with the vibrant photograph used. The composition has been well thought through with a good mix of graphics, shape and alignment.
The Monocle Alpino newspaper is the sister publication of Monocle and covers news, current affairs, business and design. It is printed twice a year over the seasonal holiday periods in summer and winter.
This is also concrete, but in a different way from the normal. This is something of an inverse concrete style, because instead of the print being in the shape of the light-bulb, it is around the blank space to create the shape.
