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.
The fifth volume of Mirage, Henrik Purienne and Frank Rocholl's perfect amazine
We can’t know a place alone, we know it under a certain light, and that changes everything.
This issue of Mirage is an invitation to appreciate not how bodies and landscapes are illuminated, but rather how light manifests itself in a much more profound way. A sensorial journey that will take us to Capri, Formentera or Bali, to glimpses of the present made from bright bits of the past, or of dreams we had forgotten.
Titled Voyage Lumière, there are two major Purienne shoots and new work from Bryan Liston and Pierrot. The vintage beauty images by Helmut Newton, Chris Von Wagenheim, Gunter Sachs, Slim Aarons are all stunning. Kate Bush and her Ferrari is extraordinary! The architecture and design features are exquisite. A masterclass.
