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.
A breathtaking portrait of Utzon's spectacular, elemental masterpiece
In 2012, Danish architect Lise Juel completed the restoration of fellow Dane Jørn Utzon’s magnificent residence on the Spanish island of Mallorca, known as Can Lis. Uncovering Utzon is a series of pensées by Juel describing the process of restoring the beloved architect’s unique and magnificent construction for the Utzon Foundation.
Accompanying Juel’s evocative account are the equally evocative images of the house by eminent architectural photographer Hélène Binet. Known for her powerful black-and-white photographs of the work of the world’s most important architects, past and present. Together, Juel’s personal account and Binet’s inimitable photography illustrate the undeniable power of this rough-hewn Modernist architectural landmark.
