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.
In 1942, a young man at Warner Brothers art department created a poster for Casablanca. Over the next sixty-three years, posters for A Streetcar Named Desire, Dial M For Murder, Bonnie and Clyde, Bullitt, My Fair Lady, Get Carter, Dirty Harry, The Untouchables and Unforgiven became coveted items, cherished by movie-goers all over the world.
The same artist is responsible for them all.
