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.
This is an alternative edition – slightly reduced in trim size but absolutely unabridged – of the 2008 classic, now out of print.
This stunning new edition offers us a privileged glimpse into Walker’s artistic process. It is a comprehensive overview that features a wide array of sketches, contact sheets, Polaroids, and source materials normally hidden within the photographer’s studio. The evocative images are rich with textured nuance and intriguing details. Walker gives full reign to his playful side and intersperses collages among the photographs.
Tim Walker’s exuberant fashion photography has dazzled the readers of Vogue and other leading magazines for over a decade. Elaborate staging and romantic motifs characterize his distinctive style. Compiled by Walker himself, a mélange of photo essays and personal pictures as well as scrapbook pages of collages and preliminary studies take us deep into his creative methods. In addition, there is a fascinating array of quotes from Walker, his assistants, fashion editors and models. This volume showcases some of the most imaginative art produced today.
