‘The Summer Weekly’ is a new weekly newspaper from the team behind ‘Monocle’ magazine. With a print run of four issues between mid-August and early September, the paper will be slower than a daily paper but quicker than a monthly magazine, reacting to the news while also running longer articles taking a more in-depth look at the big issues in business, culture, architecture and design, food, wine, fashion and sports. Monocle’s editor Andrew Tuck and creative director Richard Spencer Powell tell us about the project.

In response, Condé Nast Italia’s editorial committee initiated a four-day strike. What’s more, last week saw the company lose two high-level executives in three days. Monocle’s editor in chief Tyler Brûlé takes stock.
