MENDO is a candy store for book aficionados. Browse the latest and greates on fashion, photography, architecture, interior, traveling, food and graphic design, create wish lists, share them, order online or at our store in Amsterdam or our shops in at citizenM in London and New York City

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 and graphic design. Since its inception in 2002 MENDO evolved into the book candy store of Amsterdam. Both the physical and online store are frequented by book lovers around the globe. MENDO derives its existence to three strong pillars, being a well-balanced selection of creative books, a personal approach and a stunning environment.

The interior of the store was designed by Concrete Architectural Associates. The walls are not made of bricks, but of thousands of black MENDO books. The intimacy of the scenery, combined with the stunning publications by some of the best publishers in the world, makes MENDO without a doubt one of the most unique and inspiring stores in the Netherlands.
