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.
In 2016, internationally acclaimed designer Marc Jacobs asked his friend and talented illustrator Grace Coddington to select and draw looks from over fifty of his collections dating back to 1993, the year he presented his now-infamous Grunge collection for Perry Ellis, up until his Spring/Summer 2019 collection designed for his eponymous label. Sofia Coppola contributes an introduction, and the illustrations are punctuated with Jacobs’s written commentary and a lighthearted timeline of key moments in pop culture. Personal and insightful, this is the first look back on the designer’s groundbreaking career: Marc Jacobs in his own words.
