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.
Francois Halard’s unique photographic sensibility–old-world elegant and bohemian, accessible and personal–is unmistakable. Each image is imbued with the intimate knowledge of design history, each story a lesson in a master’s point of view.
Francois Halard has been a regular contributor to American Vogue, Apartamento, T Magazine, and Cabana, among others, for over thirty years. His work for these publications established him as the most prolific and well-known interior and architectural photographer of our time. He splits his time between homes in New York and France. His work has appeared most recently in books including John Richardson: At Home and Houses: Atelier AM. He has had solo exhibitions in Arles, France; Paris; and New York.
