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.
The many faces of India seen through Gruyaert’s unparalleled vision
For more than thirty years, celebrated photographer Harry Gruyaert has crisscrossed India, capturing the people and places of the subcontinent with his camera. This book brings together 125 of these images, many of which have never been seen before.
This collection includes striking images of women in purple saris beating grain, dyers busy at smoky vats, encampments of shepherds preparing for a new day, and other scenes of daily life.
In keeping with Gruyaert’s oeuvre, these scenes capture the sensory atmosphere, with subtle chromatic variations, painting a revelatory picture that neither romanticizes nor exoticizes the subject.
