Singapore Book Market
The establishment of the “Singapore Book Market” website is mainly to provide an online platform to promote Chinese and foreign texts, calligraphy and painting works published in Singapore.
Located in the central area of Nanyang, Singapore has attracted diverse ethnic groups to settle down since its opening as a port. After the founding of the People’s Republic of China, it has spared no effort to implement a multicultural policy and build a harmonious society. It has a unique island culture due to its special geographical environment and humanistic customs.
From the foggy South Seas when the port was opened, the helpless new customers, the helpless piglet system and the forge ahead coolie career, to the 1) kampong culture, 2) Baba culture, 3) Nanyang customs before and after independence, etc., it has come one step at a time. Also nurtured the spirit of Singapore today.
Today, 1) the tropical atmosphere of Coconut Grove, 2) Singapore-style HDB culture, 3) hawker center culture, 4) coffee shop culture,5 ) immigration culture, etc., these bits and pieces of cultural trajectory are truly reflected in the works of local writers. Singapore’s viewpoint and Singaporean vision have allowed all kinds of local writings, calligraphy and painting works to fly uniquely on the world cultural stage.

In addition, the number of physical bookstores has been decreasing year by year, and the vast international network bookstores are not We will mark the counters for us, so that many local high-quality works can only be reduced to word of mouth among the friends.
