The Booksmith

The Booksmith, which has another branch in Bangkok, offers a selection of English and Thai books, as well as an assortment of gifts and stationary. The space is small but airy, with a clean and classic design. And for those who still haven’t jumped on the Kindle train, it has that lovely new book smell that no electronic sense of convenience will ever be able to replace. The Booksmith specialises in oversized art books, the kind that you can craftily arrange on your coffee table to look posh and cultured when guests come. From graphic design to architecture, it’s all here. The fiction section is slim but sharp, with a special shelf for bestsellers, and there is a small used book section as well. The owner, Sirote Jiraprayoon, is the former director of Bangkok’s largest bookstore, Asia Books, so he definitely knows what he’s doing.
