Streets of Amsterdam · Mendo

Another book from the Streets of… series, Streets of Amsterdam is yet another a contemporary take on the classic city photo book, and this time, it’s wholly dedicated to MENDO’s home base: Amsterdam, a city they know by heart. The book is an introduction to the visual and kaleidoscopic collection of Amsterdam’s beauty, as captured by more than 40 native and international photographers.

Amsterdam is more than just the canals and the canal houses alongside them: it’s one of the most diverse and multicultural cities in the world, offering a vibrant mix of people and urban sights delightfully collected into this coffee table book. From street photography in the city’s red-light district to the architectural wonders in Amsterdam’s most modern neighborhoods—each photographer offers a personal perspective on the Dutch capital, allowing this book to be a fresh photo tribute to a historic city, as well as a visual inspiration for Amsterdammers, old and new.

A teNeues | MENDO publication

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, aesthetically-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!
