I noticed this impressive book when I received an email newsletter from MENDO, a book publisher and online store in the Netherlands. This unique limited edition, Rijks, Masters of the Golden Age pays homage to the 17th-century Dutch masterpieces from the Rijksmuseum’s prestigious Gallery of Honour. Lavishly designed with a mix of oil paintings and calligraphy, it will set you back a mere €6500.00. If you’re pocket money doesn’t stretch that far, you can purchase the Regular Edition for €125.00.
The unique art publication combines the finest materials, the most innovative techniques and the testimonies of thought leaders and craft masters from around the world. The books brings the reader eye to eye with over 60 iconic paintings such as Rembrandt’ Night watch and Vermeer’s Milkmaid. Leading contemporary critical thinkers explain how their perception of the world has been influenced by these paintings. Featuring writings of Ferran Adrià, David Allen, Alain de Botton, Anton Corbijn, Angela Missoni, Jimmy Nelson, Erwin Olaf and many more, the testimonies add a new way of seeing not only these masterpieces, but also life itself. The book is lavishly produced in genuine leather, beautiful hand-written calligraphy, and the finest printing technique and paper.
Since MENDO is the first to officially offer this exclusive book, you’re able to select the number of your choice. Mention the preferred number upon checkout in the Personal Note field. Pretty much all numbers, except for 1 to 350, are still available now.
