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.
An exquisite ode to color, this book presents the history of Dior cosmetics placed within contexts of fashion and art. Divided into twelve chapters (White, Silver, Nude, Pink, Red, Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow, Gold, Gray, and Black) Dior: The Art of Color showcases not only the sometimes glamorous, sometimes natural cosmetics, but also the aesthetics of color, which was the source of inspiration for so much of Dior’s creations.
The evolution of color through the ages is presented with iconic works from renowned artists and Dior makeup advertising campaigns—including creations from some of the greats in the field, such as Serge Lutens, Tyen, and the current head of Dior makeup, Peter Philips—captured by master photographers such as Irving Penn, Guy Bourdin, and Richard Burbridge. With a highly engaging text and never-before-seen imagery, this is a book that no student of fashion or art should be without.
