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.
Young Love is an exciting debut book from the acclaimed photographer Karen Rosetzsky. As the title suggests, it explores the magical world of ‘young love’ – that overwhelming surge of tenderness and desire, where nothing else matters and you love to the point of madness. Brimming with photographs taken over the course of 3 years in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, New Orleans, Willemstad, Prague, Cape Town and Paris, this glossy coffee table book features an eclectic mix of stories and people. These fragments are arranged in a unique pattern, joined by Karen’s incomparably raw and emotional photography. Picture after picture opens an intimate window into a topic that has entranced artists and poets for millennia. Young love is an ephemeral moment that stretches into infinity: a moment we all dream of capturing and, once gone, we strive forever to relive. Read this book and come a little closer to grabbing that moment, as you fall in love with Karen’s luscious photography, again and again and again.
