    A couple of weeks again, I emailed Monocle customer service about a simple question about subscription. I never heard back other than an auto reply.
    My question was, if I subscribe today, do I get the first two issues ?

    Hmmm that’s bad in terms of customer service. I’ll chase that up. But basically, the answer would be no, that your subscription would start with the next issue at that point. We are about to enable purchasing of back issues via the site as well, though, so that should help you.
