Book Design Shop

  • Venue
23 Yangmeizhu Xiejie
It’s unlikely you’ll be able to find 50 Shades of Grey here, but if not reading crap books is your thing, then this shop is definitely worth checking out.

The Book Design Shop isn’t packed with paper, but we love it for its specialist approach. Taiwanese owner Tony Li presents a carefully curated selection of China-based and international publications. Look for Beijing titles like the multidisciplinary ’zine on Chinese urban spaces Concrete Flux, Bactagon Project’s biannual art publication Bajia, and food mag The Cleaver Quarterly. International names include The Gourmand (UK) and Encounters (Singapore).

Li also stocks a handful of non-paper, design-oriented goods like small pastel-coloured pouches from Taiwanese brand HAO Life.
