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.
A riotous whirl of Versace style, rosé champagne and scandalous associations
The second instalment of Baroness visits the world of romantic novels with a photographic storybook penned and visualised by the performance artist Sarah Baker.
Following the lives of five outrageous characters, as they navigate tumultuous affairs, the story begins when American music mogul An ‐ gelina Marina, played by Baker, receives an unwanted holiday gift, inadvertently opening a sordid, seasonal tale of tangled lives and treachery. Everything is at stake—Angelina’s freedom, the loyalty of her daughter, her friendship with The Baroness, and—worst of all— the royalties from her hit single, ‘Spritz Me with Your Love’.
Powerful women in popular culture are often depicted as ‘bitches,’ using everything at their disposal to get their way. Baker, however, subverts this tired narrative and creates a story in which the central female characters work collaboratively to deal with blackmail and deceit.
