in a nutshell...
Welcome to MENDO
MENDO is a candy store for book aficionados. Both online and offline we are dedicated to sharing our love for beautiful books. From the hundreds and thousands of books that are being published every year, we select what we believe are the greatest books. We curate on very specific categories: fashion, photography, interior, traveling, food and graphic design. Our books can be found online, in our store in Amsterdam and in our shop-in-shops.
MENDO was founded in 2002. Our mission:
to be the coolest bookstore for visual beauty and inspiration. We’re getting there, step by step. Both the physical and online store are frequented by book lovers around the globe.
Led by its founders, Roy Rietstap, Joeri Worm and Joost Albronda, MENDO has become the home-base for inspirational and creative books on fashion, photography, architecture, interior, graphic design, food and lifestyle.
MENDO derives its existence to three strong pillars, being a well-balanced selection of creative books, a personal approach and a stunning environment.
"Visual beauty and inspiration in books. We were always searching for it, but satisfying our needs wasn’t easy. So we built ourselves MENDO – the coolest bookstore for visual beauty and inspiration…"
