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.
Coco Capitán has always scribbled down her thoughts – everywhere, all the time – often on scraps of paper that have filled notebook after notebook. As she travels the world on photography assignments, Coco Capitán’s writings grant an insight into her free and instinctive creative process.
Playful aphorisms and short poems address an array of issues with hints of humour and irony. She combines the serious with the mundane as she shares in her first text-based book social, metaphorical or sentimental moments with her witty tone and distinctive hand.
London-based artist Coco Capitán (born 1992, Spain) earned a BA in Fashion Photography at the London College of Fashion followed by an MA in Photography at the Royal College of Art. She works across a range of genres including photography, painting, mural, text, video and installation.
