While bureau favourite Monocle magazine’s read on the pandemic could not be more wrong (a recent Sunday column by its editor was again tone deaf), the book publishing wing of the magazine continues to produce a good read. A recent example is its Guide to Cosy Homes.
While the magazine is misguided in endorsing getting out and about, it has nevertheless still provided excellent advice on how to make the best of staying in.
Get it from Monocle or where ever books are sold. Getting it delivered is certainly the best option at the moment. Getting the book itself will be the first step in making the home feel just that little bit more cosier.
Just over a year ago on this blog Andrew Mueller’s book was featured on a history of Australian Football, ‘Carn.’
Apart from its near anniversary of its release it’s worth another mention because of its telling of a story of an elephant. In 1978, someone had the bright idea to bring one along to a game and it went as badly as one might expect.
