HK Arts Centre bookshopTo the Hong Kong Arts Centre in Wanchai last night, where a performance of keyboard, guitar and electric violin heralded the opening of the new MCCM bookshop.

Led by Mary Chan, MCCM has been publishing bilingual art and design titles since 2001, but this is their first venture into retail. The shop occupies one side of the Arts Centre lobby on Harbour Road, and has a great selection of books, many from other Asian publishers, that I haven’t seen elsewhere. Located right above a theatre, and with exhibition galleries upstairs, it’s a natural place to find books on visual and performing arts. Mary plans to add music and video products to the shelves too.

The shop is open every day. Call (852) 3105 0391 for enquiries.
