Coffee Table Book Favourites

On a recent trip to Amsterdam, my friend Sophie and I came across a bookstore curating some of the most alluring books I had ever laid eyes on! Mendo aims to be the coolest bookstore for visual beauty and inspiration, covering fashion, photography, graphic design, music, food, travel, interiors and everything else in between.




Although I’ve never been much of a book worm I’m a sucker for handsome ‘coffee table’ books. Imagine my delight discovering Mendo’s online shop is just as great as their Amsterdam store. Seeing as Christmas is looming, I’ve compiled an impressive wish list of aesthetically pleasing reads…
