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.
Stars and starlets have always felt at home beneath their celestial counterparts as seen in a twinkling LA sky captured in Ramelli’s celebrated night photography. A place of contrasts and stark topography, Los Angeles is well situated for drama and spectacle—flanked by mountains to the north and east, demarcating the San Fernando Valley, opening to the south and west onto Santa Monica Bay, and the coastline of the Pacific Ocean. Beyond Paramount Pictures Studio and a breathtaking landscape, the Los Angeles map boasts universities and museums, concert amphitheaters and opera houses, and is home to cutting-edge air and spacecraft industries.
It is a geographic region as well as a place in our collective imagination that embodies the American Dream: freedom, space, home ownership, ambition, and pursuit of luxuries, large and small—while the accompanying urban density, crime, and smog are harsh reminders of its flip side. Featuring a stunning selection of vibrant and varied photographs, this Los Angeles photo book from YellowKorner star Serge Ramelli captures all the dichotomies and allure of this storied Californian metropolis. Candid and posed, color and black and white, romantic and documentary, Ramelli’s images is a dynamic visual journey through a fascinating and seductive city. www.photoserge.com
