Our favorites of 2017
Comme des Garçon
“For more than 40 years, Rei Kawakubo has been widely recognized as among the most important and influential designers in the world. We’ve seen many books that mix art and fashion, but this is one of the few that was able to match them perfectly.”

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott
“I had little expectations before this book arrived. Alas and Piggott are relatively unknown in The Netherlands, but every fashion / photography enthusiast immediately falls in love with this limited edition. The typography of the box alone, is enough reason to purchase this book.”

“When we create a book, we try to make the most iconic book possible. In sports books, there aren’t many like Sportret. Few photographers capture the subject like Klaas Jan van der Weij and I’m inclined to say our design hasn’t done damage to the end result either.”
Joost Albronda, founder, co-owner and designer at MENDO

“The brand has had an amazing comeback year with the appointment of Raf Simons as creative director. The book design is reminisent of the Kate Moss classic and is filled with photography by legends such as Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Bruce Weber and Patrick Demarchelier.”
