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.
As the demand for work in illustration continues to grow, this medium is becoming a key component in the fields of advertising, communication, and reporting. Illusive, the definitive reference of contemporary illustration, showcases the work of both established names and new talents from around the world.
The book demonstrates the dynamism of this creative technique, documents global trends, and features an impressive variety of illustration styles and design approaches spanning from luscious fashion sketches to unapologetic protest images. Its scope makes Illusive a rich source of ideas for illustrators, painters, and all visual artists, as well as for graphic and editorial designers.
Building on the success of our best-selling Illusive series, this fourth volume is a comprehensive showcase of contemporary illustration that shows how the technique is interacting with different art forms.
