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 book for those interested in expressing themselves creatively
Twenty-three enticing projects help inspire a process of discovery and new ways of telling stories and animating ideas. Eyes Open features photographs by young people from around the globe, as well as work by professional artists that demonstrates how a simple idea can be expanded. Ideal for any person from the ages of nine and upwards, the book is grounded in observation and storytelling: two traits that the award-winning Meiselas is well known for.
The projects detailed in the book were carefully chosen so kids can revisit them time and time again, each occasion delivering different results. Additionally, artists such as Robert Adams, Dawoud Bey, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Graciela Iturbide and Cindy Sherman also offer a glimpse into their respective creative processes, sharing wise words on the matter.
Playful and meaningful, this book is for young would-be photographers and those interested in expressing themselves creatively.
