Amsterdam Book

(Free Shipping & Returns)


It is with pride that Mendo announced Amsterdam, A Metropolitan Village, a book about the city Mendo loves, and a response to a decade-old question. At MENDO, in the very heart of Amsterdam, Mendo have, since 2002, been asked the same question almost daily: “Do you have a good book about Amsterdam?” Invariably, the answer is: “Nothing that is up to the MENDO standard. This book is Mendo's answer. And that answer, from now on, is: “You bet!”

Initiated by MENDO, for a whole year, photographer Ewout Huibers, was given the freedom to wander through the city and capture what he thought was interesting. And the result is at least a tribute of great diversity. From the role of the water in the city to the parasols in the front yards. From an architectural point of reference to a cyclist in the snow. Familiar and surprising, like only Amsterdam can be.
