You are about to see what is quite possibly the most unusual creation Kinokuniya Bookstores of Indonesia has ever come up with – an e-catalogue.
Yes, you read that correctly. It is an electronic catalogue of our holiday season books, carefully and lovingly selected by our Merchandising Team for your holiday reading inspiration, that we designed for your computer, on your digital book readers and other electronic devices.
Have Kinokuniya Indonesia gone totally digital and forsaking print books altogether? The answer is obviously no. All of us who work here are still 110% percent in love with the printed books. We love the feel of paper beneath our fingertips and in our grips. We derive total pleasure from turning pages in our favorite books. We delight in seeing a neatly organized display on our shelves. And we will continue to sell print books as long as we can (which we hope is a very long time indeed!)
However, we do realize that the world has moved forward. BlackBerry, iPhones, Android phones, tablets, computers… they are all becoming more and more an integral part of society and the human way of life. We’re also thinking of our customers who live in other cities outside Jakarta – Bandung, Surabaya, Yogyakarta, Solo, Medan, Bali, Samarinda, Makassar… we realize that technology has made it possible for us in Kinokuniya’s HQ in Jakarta to communicate with them. That is why we decided to make this catalogue more accessible to a wider audience. Whether you’re using a BlackBerry in Jakarta, a personal computer in Bali or even an iPad in Singapore, you can still grab our holiday catalogue to find reading and gift ideas.
We hope that the combination of innovative design by our partners in Studio Kudos, convenient digital technology and good ol’ print books will make this holiday season a very festive and happy affair for you. Enjoy!
The Kinokuniya Indonesia Team
