The best independent bookshop in Singapore specializing in Southeast Asian titles. Set up in 1976, its vision is to make a wide variety of publications on Southeast Asia available to a wider audience. It stocks an extensive collection of books and journals relating to the region. They compile a new titles list calledSelections for customers on their mailing list, and they've recently launched a dedicated blog. They put out occasional special subject lists--for example on The Chinese in Southeast Asian, Art, Architecture, and Southeast Asian Literature. They are also good about special-ordering titles for you they do not have in stock and FOM members receive a 10% discount by showing their membership card at time of purchase.
