Product description

About the Author

At the heart of MENDO is the love of pure design. Before establishing the inspirational concept store and go-to flagship bookstore for style-conscious bibliophiles in Amsterdam in 2002, founders Roy Rietstap and Joost Albronda were accomplished graphic designers with an eye for innovation and entrepreneurship. Thus, a brilliant retail concept was created in the form of the MENDO of today. The collaboration of teNeues x MENDO is a synergy on many levels-a premier international publisher of illustrated books on culture combining with trendsetting designers with a great love for beautiful, asthetically-minded books- housed in a one-of-a-kind global bookstore. If you look closely, you will see that the simple, elegant black walls are actually made of precise stacks of books-an idea that is typical Amsterdam!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Photos But Not Fully Representative of New York
Reviewed in the United States on 22 July 2020
The photos included in this book are great and capture some of the awe and grittiness of New York City well. I especially like the photographers’ perspective through quotes. That said, the back of the book says that NYC “boasts tremendous diversity” but the book relegates the most diverse borough in NYC (and the world!), Queens, to only about three photos. Poor Staten Island got 0 photos unless you count a shot of the ferry with the city in the background with no sign of Staten Island itself. But somehow the publishers went out of their way to include what felt like 5+ photos of the Occulus and a photo taken in Jersey.

As a born and raised New Yorker, this disappointed me and I cannot say that this book is fully representative of NYC as a whole. Although I have to add that I am delighted the Bronx had considerable space since people tend to forget about the Bronx or treat it like it’s not a worthy borough. Either way, they should rename the book “The Streets of Manhattan, The Bronx, Brooklyn and The Occulus” since those are the only places that seem to matter to the photographers and publishers.

Also there’s a typo: They labeled 8th Street station as Greenwich Village in Manhattan when the shot of the station is in Brooklyn. They’d know that if they really knew NYC and bothered to look at their own photo :)
