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 visual feast of work
As with the other books in the series, this new tome compiles work by designers and studios from a set part of the world, with the South Korea edition featuring Na Kim – who previously spoke with CR about her work as a cover designer – alongside Studio Fnt, Ordinary People and Jaehoon Choi.
Counter-Print’s book helps set the scene via a mini history of the country – which includes the fact that half of South Korea’s 25-million-strong population lives in the capital city of Seoul – as well as tracing its historic links to design.
After this brief bit of context-setting, the book goes on to spotlight a visual feast of work from 19 practitioners, including classic graphic design as well as art installations and products.
