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 offering of inspiration and tranquillity
Living in Nature showcases a selection of architect-designed houses that have something fundamental in common: a special relationship with the natural world.
The book’s entries are arranged into elemental chapter headings: Air is filled with beautiful tree houses and mountain refuges; Earth is packed with bucolic, countryside places; Fire is all desert dwellings, volcanic bolt holes and tropical retreats; and water all lake, river and beach houses.
The book’s extensive photography allows readers to see these places both on the interior and the exterior, while the accompanying text explains how and why they were built.
Armchair travellers can flit from the treetops of Costa Rica to the Norwegain mountain peaks as they flick through these pages; architects and architectural enthusiasts can discover more about contemporary home creation in the most extreme climates; and anyone who might feel as if the concrete jungle isn’t quite as rewarding a environment as they used to think will find solace and enjoyment in these pages.
