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.
An icon of Dutch residential modernism
Huis Jan de Jong has remained an icon of 20th-century residential modernism in the Netherlands ever since its completion in the late 1960s.
Lovingly portrayed by architectural photographer Kim Zwarts, the house and its studio come alive in this book through refined qualities of light and natural shading.
Caroline Voet and Hilde de Haan also contribute an essay in which they describe the house against its historical and stylistic backgrounds.
