Do go to Cornelissen & Son near the British
Museum, as already recommended, and also to Falkiner's (click on supplies catalogue for address etc)
on Southhampton Row near the Holborn Sation for papers and pens and
bookbinding supplies. Both are old-worldy and fun to visit. I recommend
both as a great experience. Wish I could go too! We will expect a
detailed report.

You will find there are lots of art supply stores in London, many of
them quite hole-in-the-wall in appearance but crammed with art
supplies. I never made it to Atlantis but heard it has everything. I
mostly went to LondonArt in the north
end on the Finchley Road, Wheatsheaf
near the Baker Street tube station. Also good for papers and pens is
Paperchase on Tottenham Court Road near the Goodge Street Station, very
modern though.

Gentle sci-arters,

I remember a few years back some discussion about a special pen store
in London, very quaint and Dickensian.  I will be traveling to London
the first week of Oct., and would love to have this place on my
itinerary if it still exists.  Ring any bells?

Many thanks in advance,
