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.
This signed, limited, two-volume Collector’s Edition celebrates Campbell’s remarkable career amidst the greatest legends of fashion and photography with jaw-dropping images and exclusive autobiographical text.
Volume 1 showcases the very best of Campbell’s portfolio, with photographs from the likes of Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Richard Avedon, Anton Corbijn, Patrick Demarchelier, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Mario Testino, Ellen von Unwerth, and Bruce Weber, and such unforgettable shoots as Peter Lindbergh’s joyful sequence of Naomi dancing as Josephine Baker on the beach in Deauville for Italian Vogue, or Jean-Paul Goude’s stunning composition of Naomi racing a cheetah for U.S. Harper’s Bazaar.
In a dazzling meeting of art and fashion, Volume 1 is presented in a multiple artwork by British pop art luminary Allen Jones
Volume 2 features Naomi’s extensive autobiographical text, illustrated by magazine covers, ads, never-before-seen personal snapshots, video stills, and more. Naomi recalls her childhood; the beginning of her modeling career; her work with fashion’s greatest designers, including Azzedine Alaïa, John Galliano, Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld, Gianni Versace; and experiencing the meteoric rise to superstardom. Photographer biographies and an illustrated appendix are also included.
