Good creative books in local bookstores

Friday, October 26, 2012
Our local bookstores have quite a good range of creative selections. Some book stores carry a larger range on creative and hobby books, others might not. To make your search quicker and easier, it is good to familiarize with the local bookstores and know what sort of range they carry so that you don't have to waste time and energy, not to mention petrol.


Kinokuniya in KLCC, Kuala Lumpur has a wide selection on books on art, crafts and creativity. It has 2 floors, and already I am yet to finish floor 1. I shall leave floor 2 for you to discover. It is definitely not my first time to Kinokuniya, but during my recent visit, I feel as if I am new there because I just realized the variety they have just under the arts & craft category alone. Kinokuniya’s books are unique. The titles that they carry are not the regular ones you find in other bookstores that we know such as MPH or Popular. They have various international titles, with some affordable prices and some not quite affordable. Kinokuniya has quite an option when it comes to jewelry making, upcycling & recycling, paper crafting, scrap booking and alter-art journaling.

But if you are in for some creative self-development, it is located at the row of bookshelves before the arts and craft section. 

Useful for Graphic Designers and Illustrators.

Some of these graphic novels and comic books can be the source of inspiration for those who fans of art & illustration

MPH, Subang Parade

Not at all MPH outlets carry large range of arts & craft titles. MPH is known for carrying good range of novels and popular titles. However, the MPH in Subang Parade seem to have quite a variety. They have expanded their titles in the creative section, especially books on fashion and sewing. For those of you who enjoy sewing and needlework, you might just be in luck at MPH Subang Parade. On a different note, MPH Subang Parade have also included a good selection on art & illustrations, as well as drawing guide books.
