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.
A uniquely collaborative reworked version of Photographs
For the Photographs Annotated Artists Edition, an international selection of artists were sent a physical copy of Davison’s original book and given free rein to scribble, annotate, rework, cut out, destroy and generally enjoy Jack’s malleable images.
The result is a uniquely collaborative reworked version of Photographs, which within the same format, sequence and layout as the original creates a hybridised, playful and open-ended book, ranging from extravagant and visceral reworkings, where Davison’s original source images are near-obliterated, to schoolboy doodles and crayon scribbles by Davison’s young nieces and nephews.
Shoulder-to-shoulder are artists foremost in their mediums, such as Nathalie du Pasquier, Atelier Bingo, Ruth van Beek, Stefan Marx, Marie Jacotey and John Booth, alongside emerging, new and young voices in illustration, collage and contemporary drawing.
