Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
Dutch creativity beyond borders
A collaboration between …,staat and MENDO, this book is not a portfolio, a greatest hits or an academic tome. THE NEW STIJL presents work from those who are dreamers, doers and disruptive thinkers challenging us to look at things in a new way. This is a bombastic festival of a book, curated across disciplines and styles, designed to keep you guessing. It’s full of energy, enlightening conversations, clashing creatives and unexpected combinations – think big names with unexpected work and unexpected names with big work.
Bringing together striking visual chapters with interviews and written insights from a range of cultural commentators, this book hopes to better understand what Dutch creativity means today and who will emerge as its custodians in the coming years.
THE NEW STIJL spans the fields of photography, industrial design, fashion, architecture, fine art, editorial design, creative direction, illustration, landscape design, digital and graphic design. More than 50 creatives who consistently make our jaws drop. Featuring Sabine Marcelis, BYBORRE, Formafantasma, Samir Bantal, Viviane Sassen, Inez & Vinoodh, Iris van Herpen, Jop van Bennekom, Raquel van Haver, The Fabricant, DRIFT, Daily Paper, Bas Timmer, Carlijn Jacobs, Imruh Asha, Scheltens & Abbenes, Anne Holtrop amongst many others.
