Open since 2007, this small yet densely stocked bookstore located inside the Shanghai Sculpture Space caters mainly to a clientele of artists and designers with a sizable collection of books specializing in graphic arts, interior design, fashion and architecture. Most of the books are in English and range from 200 to 600 yuan as they are high-end publications and a bit of a rarity in Shanghai. While the bookshop owners chose the location because it is less commercial and more geared toward professional artists, tourists can also find books that will suit their artistic interests as the store holds much coffee table-worthy material; in fact Red Bookstore's best-seller is a catalogue of local art entitled "Creative Tour" displaying some of the finest works from last year. In this tiny 55-square-meter space you can find minimalist-style stationery from Hong Kong made using recycled materials.
