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 book that reflects his generous energy and willingness to turn the status quo on its head
For Abloh, the museum catalogue is another opportunity to “question everything.” This special-edition monograph, produced in close collaboration with the artist himself, explores his creative output in a three-books-in-one format.
The catalogue section offers an overview of Abloh’s interdisciplinary practice by Michael Darling and features essays and interviews with key voices in art, fashion, design, and architecture, including Taiye Selasi, Lou Stoppard, Michael Rock, Samir Bantal, Rem Koolhaas, and Anja Aronowsky Cronberg.
About Virgil Abloh
In the archives section, more than 1,800 never-before-seen images pulled from the artist’s personal files reveal the remarkable breadth of his influences and collaborations. And the index cross references the catalogue plates—Abloh’s works—with his projects and process, using a vocabulary of themes developed by Abloh.
