‘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.

Rob Orchard is the editor of ‘Delayed Gratification’, a quarterly magazine proud to be the ‘last to breaking news’. It’s a strange boast, especially in today’s speed-obsessed media market. But the editors hope that returning to stories weeks after they’ve disappeared from the front pages and newsfeeds allows for a deeper level of analysis. We speak to editor Rob Orchard.

Last Friday the company announced plans to shut down ‘Vogue’ Italia’s sister publications ‘L’Uomo Vogue’, ‘Vogue Bambini’, ‘Vogue Sposa’ and ‘Vogue Accessories’. 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.
