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.
Started as a self-initiated minor within the Design Academy of Eindhoven, OFFFENCE Collective aims to challenge the existing notions of education. In this publication OFFFENCE was granted carte blanche to experiment within the limits of publishing featuring their self-developed educational system reports from six months in Matera (Italy), various experiments and workshops, and a toolkit to help you overthrow your own educational institute!
The book is a collection of everything OFFFENCE has done in the past year. Eindhovense Ravioli, a tear out toolkit, and many memories shared by the entire collective.
