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.
What the world needs now. An LA book. A lifestyle book. A Purienne book. An IDEA book. That book is Jeux de Peau.
Henrik Purienne is the photographer. The women he photographs are his models and friends. The interiors, furniture and design objects are his own. You look at the book and you think ‘this is the life’ and the great thing is that, yes indeed, this is the life. It is your new life with this book.
The book comes in a specially made card slipcase. It is designed to look and to feel like it belongs in a house like Jeux de Peau.
The book is a clear shot at perfection
Purienne suffers from AIS (Aesthetic Irritability Syndrome). Jeux de Peau is subtitled ‘Physical Space as Mental Space’. As an artist, he first creates the environment, lives in it and then photographs it.
