About Footpath Bookshop


The Footpath Bookshop was started by Mumbai Paused aka Gopal MS, a blogger who documents Mumbai’s street. The bookshop is as an experiment to bring affordable photobooks in the digital format to a new generation of readers in India and photostories from India to people around the world.

Technology makes it possible for everyone to create photobooks and tell their stories. This bookshop is an example of how it can be done and reach out to people.

Technology allows everyone to shoot pictures, make it into stories and share it easily, widely and democratically across the world wide web. We encourage you to tell you stories in any form that you enjoy and share it with the world. There aren’t enough stories out there that are well told even in the age of what looks like excessive information. Information yes. More knowledge elevated by art… even better!
