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.
Greek film director Yorgos Lanthimos. The man who made Dogtooth, The Lobster, Killing of a Sacred Deer and The Favourite is the artist photographer of this new extraordinary Gucci book.
Yorgos, as with his films, has pulled off something at once comic and disturbing. A dusty dystopia he calls ΩOTOKIA.
Edition of 1000
Staged and photographed at the Leda Gallery of Villa Albani Torlonia in Rome. Built in 1747 by Carlo Manchionni the gallery was a cultural powerhouse, hosting discussions, concerts, dances and masked comedies. It held an exceptional collection of original Greek and Roman sculptures. In the Lanthimos’ vision of Gucci, those sculptures and statues come to life. They interact with the Gucci clad models.
