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 journey to the heart of Antarctica
The truth is, Antarctica has never been the same. It’s almost unfair to call it the seventh continent, even if that’s how many travelers see it, the last item on a bucket list. Antarctica is more like a second Earth. Photographer Jamie Hawkesworth has captured the landscape and life of Antarctica in an awe-inspiring way.
Antarctica’s forbidding landscape is, in essence, a vast collection of ice in all its shapes, forms and densities, surrounded by water that was either just ice or is about to become ice again. It is a thousand shades of blue, from near pitch-black to the most brilliant turquoise, capped with a hundred shades of white. Depending on the time of year, the sun might never set or never rise. Our tenuous, alien settlements there are still no match for penguin colonies filled with tens of thousands of residents, or the associations of humpback whales whose singing is rivaled only by the howling of the ice itself.
It’s easier to care about a place after you’ve touched it—and easier still after it has touched you. Stand in the middle of all that upheaval and melt, float in a kayak at the source of our rising seas, and you’ll feel less like an agent of change and more like the object of it. You’re the one who will never be the same.
