Also, community members from all walks of life — including academics, artists, activists, students of all ages, in all parts of the country know, love and count on Marie and ArkipelagoBooks to provide current, quality products and services. Just this past Fall, this same community rallied and won their bid for SOMA PILIPINAS, San Francisco’s newest Historical District, marking the contributions of Filipinos to the neighborhood and to the city.”

Mt Cloud Bookshop (Philippines)
Mt. Cloud Bookshop

“Mt Cloud Bookshop was opened in August 2010 by Baguio born sisters Padma and Feliz Perez. It was a long-time collective dream of the family to run an independent bookshop in Baguio City, inspired in part by Cecile Afable’s Ato Bookshop and Gallery, and Jorge Arago’s Angel’s Trumpet. Both bookshops were once havens for intellectuals and artists alike.”

“Mt Cloud’s selection presents a wide spectrum of Philippine literature and scholarly work. The titles on the shelves vary from popular reads to rare finds. Although Mt Cloud is 80% Filipiniana, we also carry a few choice books from foreign publishers. The bookshop is a great place to discover independent authors or the fine work of small publishing houses. A special section is dedicated to books on Northern Luzon, including works of writers who have lived in Baguio.”

“In Mt Cloud Bookshop, a reader might find books remembered from childhood or from lifetimes away and choose to sit, read and draw memories from these books. The bookshop is a portal to the wilderness and landscapes of literature, history and social issues. At the same time, it is a labyrinth, encouraging and leading readers to move inward in silence, into the many worlds tucked away in our shelves and selves.”

“Mt Cloud Bookshop evokes a sense of Baguio as home, and we hope you feel that when you walk through our doors. We exist for those who know the wild beauty of books, who hold them as though they are about to come alive. We exist for those that open books and inhale deeply, as though the book was giving them new life. We can’t imagine a life without books, and if you can’t either, then we exist just for you, too. Come visit and discover the rest of our story and all the other stories waiting in the bookshop.”
