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.
The golden times of motor racing
Carlo Abarth’s trademark, the scorpion, is proudly emblazoned on sporty Fiat models again today. Car fans know that this is not just about Fiat tuning, but also a long history of sporting and technical successes.
Carlo Abarth sold his company to the Fiat group in 1971. Today, alongside the Abarth 124 Spider, the Fiat 500 Abarth is one of the best-known models from the tuning workshop. Abarth is also famous for its racing cars, which were used in all of the FIA categories of the time. Passion, skill and entrepreneurial skills allowed the sporty scorpions to achieve numerous victories and enjoy an excellent reputation with racing drivers, but also with sporty private drivers.
The almost 50 cars in a private Swiss collection were captured by renowned international photographers. Among them are special rarities from every decade of the Abarth company history: Fragile prototypes and aerodynamically optimized one-offs next to snappy little racing rolls that crave fresh air with the (rear) bonnet open.
A unique collection with one-offs, racing cars and classic sports cars and exclusive insights into the archives of Carlo Abarth, Engelbert Möll and Franz Steinbacher.
