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.
Lixenberg presents a portrait of not only life in Amsterdam, but also of our time
Fascinated by the multitude and variety of the more than 180 locations used in the script for the television series, Dana Lixenberg decided to make a photo series of the city she left for New York more than twenty years ago: her birthplace, Amsterdam.
The absence of people focuses the viewers attention on details that would normally go unnoticed, revealing the carefully designed nature of the spaces around us, which bear the unmistakable traces of our passage.
