BOOK DESCRIPTION: Behold the individuality of small businesses in Singapore! Journey through a selection of trades in the Lion City with this stunning collection of photographic essays. From industries as far-flung as electronics to lingerie to fresh seafood, the sociologist Nazish Zafar shares her conversations with business owners to reveal an intimate view into their struggles and successes. The book is a visual showcase of the way small businesses generate a vital source of originality and humanity in our cities. May the impression and insights leave you with the same sense of wide-eyed awe that you feel in a busy, vibrant market. Enjoy!


The book includes your very own colouring pages of Peranakan shophouses!
