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 books brings the reader eye to eye with over 60 iconic paintings such as Rembrandt’ Night watch and Vermeer’s Milkmaid. Leading contemporary critical thinkers explain how their perception of the world has been influenced by these paintings. Also available in a <a href=”https://www.mendo.nl/product/rijks-masters-golden-age/”>limited edition.</a>
This edition combines both the images of the paintings and the interviews with leading contemporary critical thinkers from the worlds of philosophy, art, film, food, trend, business and design explain how their perception of the world has been influenced by these paintings. Featuring writings of Ferran Adrià, David Allen, Alain de Botton, Anton Corbijn, Angela Missoni, Jimmy Nelson, Erwin Olaf and many more, the testimonies add a new way of seeing not only these masterpieces, but also life itself. This edition will be produced in a hardback format.
“This book is about how the greatest masterpieces influence how we see the world today,” - Marcel Wanders.
