an independent bookshop in in Pasar Santa, Jakarta


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is POST?

We're an independent bookshop on the upper floor of Pasar Santa, South Jakarta. You can find books from independent publishers in Indonesia, some second hand books, and selected new English books that we usually want to read ourselves. We host regular writing classes called #MenulisdiPasar, book launches, book critique club, book-related exhibitions, and open to collaborations around books and reading.  We're small, only 4x4m, but happy. 

When are you open?

We are open on Saturday and Sunday, 3-8pm, sometimes earlier if we have events. 

Do you have a catalog or price list?

No, and we most likely never will. Our bookshop is small and the collection changes rapidly. We focus on bringing books we love and want to read, but unavailable in major bookstores, so titles change quite often. If you want to have a peek into our collection, we share most of our newcomers on our Instagram or Twitter accounts, both under @post_santa. 

Can I buy books online?

Yes, with additional shipping fee as applied by JNE. You can send a title you're interested in and your address to

Can you help me find a book?

We can definitely try! Send your query to and we'll see whether we can hunt one down for you.
