Books by the Foot:

For interior design, photo shoots, film sets and subject-based libraries, we provide books by the foot in Chinese and English. Prices range from 240 HKD-per-foot for general hard-cover titles to 2350 HKD and up for fine leather bindings. Postage is additional.


Our New York affiliate, Argosy Books, has a choice of fine books for interior design and institutions, at competitive prices. Argosy furnished the library of President John F. Kennedy with Americana, and supplies exquisite leather bound books for film sets, all-white books for store interiors such as the Ralph Lauren Flagship store in New York City. Founded in 1925, it is the oldest independent bookstore in New York.


Hong Kong-based staff can source books in English, Chinese, Japanese, and French for readers, collectors, and designers. We can also tailor to your colour scheme. For avid readers, we are happy to suggest books on your favorite subjects and themes.


Books are journeys in the imagination--complete with sights, sounds, touch, and heart. Every home needs a library! Three books can inspire a life's work.

Art-Life Gallery Workshop sees art as critical practice. To that end, we give workshops in tandem with exhibitions and trade in books & books- by-the-foot. Works in paper are our focus: Drawings can give insight into an artist's creative process; sketches are building blocks for a new collection, or unique pieces to round out a collection of painting and sculpture. Classes in paper making, sustainable art, and drawing are on offer. We customize events: A paper anniversary, to celebrate your marriage; Corporate art workshops to build team morale and focus on circularity. Fun and eye-opening.

Sustainability is a concern for local communities and global companies. Art-Life workshops are a way to learn about resources and environmental impacts. We recycle, reuse, and repurpose materials to make art. Paper making, 3-D Paintings, Collage, and Fruit-and-Vegetable Prints are on offer.  Enjoy wine & cheese in a light & bright space.
