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.
Works of various unexpected design styles, put together in one issue
‘Graphic’ invited ten teams that approach topical social issues from various angles, providing them with sixteen pages to convey their areas of research.
For some, this is a report, chronology, or journal, while others choose talks, interviews, or colouring books to reinforce their arguments. The teams all share the same kind of critical mind in their search for appropriate means of expression.
Three short essays which expand upon the topics raised are also included. Emerging from different backgrounds and thematic concerns, they nevertheless give rise to constructive discussion. Rather than appearing as a single volume, the contributions are bound separately like brochures or flyers.
