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 creative biannual about the culture of beauty
The world is full of relentless imagery of pseudo glamour masquerading as beauty. In reality this has nothing to do with “beauty” it is about conformity, brand and formula. Peddlers of false hopes, hierarchies, religions and pornographers have all subverted beauty for their own end.
Without character and emotion, there is no beauty and it is too oppressive to present one ideal to women or men. Punk said, “screw the formula.” We say liberate creative beauty, give beauty a brave new face. There is nothing more inspiring than beauty when the chains are taken off.
