The sum is often bigger than the parts, although in the case of Monki it is the fascinating and intriguing parts that very much bring the Monki world to life.

On the other hand, personalities abound in the Monki magazine, from phsychic scandinavians and individual designers to fashionistas with a flair for cosmic thermodynamics.

Individuality is celebrated as a whole, and being different creates a glorious commonality.
