Since it launched in 2007, London-based Monocle went from a thinking person's magazine to a global lifestyle brand with product collabs and a fleet of luxe coffee table books under its name. And now they're expanding the latter even further with The Monocle Book of Japan, due out May 19 and available to pre-order now.

Designed to unpack the nation from every angle, it will take you "from snowy Hokkaido in the north to the tropical southern islands of Okinawa and, along the way, deep-dive into the worlds of culture, design, retail and more."

A perfect buy for all Japanophiles and anyone trying to visit the country over the next few years, it will also make for a stylish statement on your coffee table (thanks, in part, to its minimalist design with gold foil) once you go cover to cover a few times.
