Bookmark the Filipino Bookstore

Seasons Greetings!

For 74 years, the Bookmark has transformed from being a small shop that sells books and religious items in the 1940s to one of the country’s most well-loved Philippine bookstores dedicated to the development and continuing evolution of Philippine literature and the modern Filipino. 

To kick off its year-long celebration for its 75th anniversary in November 2020, we take you on a virtual trip down memory lane to the early years of your Filipino Bookstore as it contributed to the development of Philippine literature and society.
