OUR STORY

Anáhaw Books

A specialty online bookstore to make stories on Philippine culture — its history, heroes, food, and traditions — accessible worldwide.

(Est. 2018) was built on the clamor for books on Philippine literature, life and culture. We created this specialty bookstore online to make stories on Philippine culture—its history, heroes, food and traditions—accessible all over the world.

Here you will find a diverse catalog of literary work from a spectrum of genres, where classics and contemporary local titles come together. As fastidious book collectors, we are passionate about literary heritage, and strive to stock history-defining books that are long out of print (and often unavailable in major bookstores). Thus we’ve taken it upon ourselves to ensure these literary pieces see new life on our shelves, so they can be enjoyed by future generations.

From the celebrated novels of National Artist for Literature F. Sionil Jose, elusive Gilda Cordero-Fernando books that are the definitive on Filipino culture, award-winning children’s books, to rare written material on Philippine art, folklore, history, and architecture—our literary repertoire promises enriching encounters with local culture. Best of all, we’ve simply just begun, and we continue to grow our selection day by day.

Whether you’re a student, researcher, fellow book collector, casual reader or simply innately curious, we are thrilled to welcome you to the world of Filipiniana.
