Another book from the Streets of… series, Streets of Amsterdam is yet another a contemporary take on the classic city photo book, and this time, it’s wholly dedicated to MENDO’s home base: Amsterdam, a city they know by heart. The book is an introduction to the visual and kaleidoscopic collection of Amsterdam’s beauty, as captured by more than 40 native and international photographers. Amsterdam is more than just the canals and the canal houses alongside them: it’s one of the most diverse and multicultural cities in the world, offering a vibrant mix of people and urban sights delightfully collected into this coffee table book. From street photography in the city’s red light district to the architectural wonders in Amsterdam’s most modern neighborhoods—each photographer offers a personal perspective on the Dutch capital, allowing this book to be a fresh photo tribute to a historic city, as well as a visual inspiration for Amsterdammers, old and new.

In this joyful new book Monocle unpacks what makes a great city, whether you’re looking for a new place to call home or need help fixing your own. How do we make better cities – places that work for people of all ages and backgrounds? How do we make cities that provide the obvious essentials – great transport, good places to work – as well as the softer elements that truly deliver quality of life, from urban swimming pools to rooftop clubs? Since its launch in 2007, Monocle has been passionate about making better places to live. Every year it publishes a Quality of Life Survey, which names the top 25 cities to call home. In addition, across the issues, it has interviewed the best mayors, looked at the metropolises putting pedestrians first and met the people creating the best parks, both pocket and grand. Discover how you too can have a High Line, create the most covetable housing or turn a dirty river into a summer asset. Packed with great images and intriguing reports, this is a book that takes the urbanism debate away from city hall and explains what’s needed in ways that will inspire us all.

The introduction of the Porsche 901 in 1963 marked a milestone in automotive history. Although the name later had to be changed because Peugeot had patented having a 0 in the middle of car model numbers, the 911 didn’t let anything stand in the way of its becoming an iconic sports car. This success story spans all the way from the 901 and the Carrera RS 2.7 (which with its characteristic rear spoiler—the so-called “ducktail”— was the fastest production car of its time) right up to the current generation of the 991. The famous automotive photographer René Staud showcases the most important models—all in his typically radiant and distinctive style.

This stylishly illustrated book looks back at the glamour of Concorde air travel and is as sleek and elegant as the aircraft it celebrates. When the first commercial Concordes zoomed off the runways in Paris and London in the late 1960s, crossing the Atlantic in just under three hours, they established a new standard for luxury flight. Powered by 38,000 pounds of thrust and easily recognizable with its delta wing and drooping nose, the Concorde jet embodied the pinnacle of aviation technology and industrial design. It quickly became the preferred mode of transatlantic flight for superstars and business moguls alike. Opening with a lively history of the jet and how it changed travel, the book focuses on the look and feel of the Concorde. Photos of the jet’s evolving interiors show how the original, starkly designed cabin gave way to luxury seats and interiors designed by the likes of Sir Terence Conran and Andrée Putman. Filled with fascinating historical and technical background, and drawn from the author’s personal collection of more than one thousand Concorde-related objects, this elegant book offers rarely seen historical photography and firsthand contributions from the people who helped create the Concorde experience from take-off to landing and beyond.
