La Libreria

In case you don't know, there is one book shop, La Libreria,  selling and promoting artists' books and the book arts here, yes, in Singapore. The book shop, previously at Queen Street, was moved in Oct 2008 to the recent location at University Cultural Centre, NUS Musuem, Level 3, 50 Kent Ridge Crescent, Singapore 119279 (Tel:6516 8797). Opening hours are 12-19 Wed-Sat, 12-18 Sun, closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and public holidays.

La Libreria is like an underground movement of the art world, which stealthily but steadily bringing in edgy and thoughtprovoking works/exhibitions. Bookbinding workshops are held regularly as well.

It's a pity that one cannot view the beautiful artists' books online.
