When every I find my self in Amsterdam I ‘actually’ always pay a visit to Mendo bookstore in the capital of the Netherlands. We share a passion for visual curiosity and weather it is in their shop or online in their 'virtual shop' my mind always feeds on all the beauty and inspiration in the books they have on display. A candy store for book aficionados, great ever changing collection of coffee table books for those who appreciate it.
”Today, people are experiencing an information overload. Having an opinion, and creating a personal identity isn’t actually all that easy anymore. Where bookstores used to be a reliable reference, they are now struggling to cope with the digital era, often finding themselves trapped in trying to offer “it all”. With their inability to make choices, they lose their role as a landmark for personal identification and inspiration. This calls for curatorship and tangibility.” Mendo
