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.
For over four decades, Anton Corbijn, Dutch photographer and the director of award-winning feature films (Control, 2007; The American, 2010; A Most Wanted Man, 2014) and near 100 music videos, has been making portraits of artists and celebrities such as Robert de Niro, Nelson Mandela, Gerhard Richter, David Bowie, William Burroughs, Kurt Cobain, Lucian Freud, Clint Eastwood, Kate Moss, Miles Davis, Allen Ginsberg, Bruce Springsteen, Ai Weiwei, and Patti Smith.
His collaboration with some musicians such as U2, Depeche Mode, and Tom Waits stretches over several decades, holding an extremely rare position in that world. This book brings together some of Corbijn’s most iconic images. With Schirmer/Mosel, he has published 15 books on his photographic and cinematic work, from his stunning debut Famouz in 1989 and his all-time bestseller Star Trak to his long-time portrait Waits/Corbijn and Looking at A Most Wanted Man.
