From Byron Bay to London’s Paddington, we’ve assembled a healthy line-up of some of today’s – and yesterday’s – best magazines from across the globe as we delve into the nitty gritty of eye-popping imagery and the finest font-making. The Hyman Archive’s James Hyman joins Monocle’s Tom Edwards to discuss some of his favourites, Liam Aldous visits the team behind Australia’s ‘Lunch Lady’ magazine and we ponder print on display Paddington’s Kioskafe.
