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.
Celebrities get the analogue treatment
Established in 2013 by friends and colleagues Imran Ciesay and Solomon Boyede, aka Ciesay and Soulz, Places+Faces began as a blog focused on the intersection of the arts, hip-hop, and fashion. Since, the brand has navigated a bevy of creative realms all the while creating fashion pop-ups, DJing around the world, and photographing the likes of Kanye West, A$AP Ferg, Lil Yachty, and more.
‘It’s what we are most passionate about, being able to capture moments in time that can exist forever.’
With photos dating back as far as 2014, the book features images of people spanning the worlds of music, fashion and film. A$AP Rocky, Iris Law, Skepta, Idris Elba and Tyler, the Creator all make an appearance, alongside a surprise shot of Quentin Tarantino – a moment that happened by chance.
