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.
There is no bigger Japanese cliché than blooming cherry trees.
No bigger cliché, but also no symbol or image to better express the desire for Japan. Writes Hripsimé Visser, curator of photography at the Stedelijk Museum. In this new series, Orna Wertman implements this method to its ultimate consequence. The same motif returns. The cherry blossom is a compulsive element in the colours of the constructed landscapes, situations and encounters.
