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 is it like to live in a seventeenth century canal building? How it is to work on a street which is easier to reach by boat than by car? How does it feel to hear the sound of laughter across the calm water on a balmy summer evening, or to kiss your sweetheart under a wooden bascule bridge? Many volumes have been written about this life on the Amsterdam canals, but still the whole story was yet to be told. This book has managed to do so. Perhaps the tale is best told with pictures rather than words, which makes photographer Cris Toala Olivares from Ecuador a born storyteller.
