On our way to the British Museum – the one thing my aunt made compulsory on our visit – she pointed out an amazing looking artist’s supply shop, which I wanted to go into right away, but we were on a Mission. Fortunately, after enjoying the Museum (OK, a select subset of it, no way to get it all in one go) I was able to find the store again and it was still open. It was absolutely magical inside, with pigments and brushes and all sorts of things I have no use for at the moment but maybe some day but also pens and inks and etching tools and just the fantastical array of it all AND they had the most wonderful special built cabinets for it all. SO. AMAZING!!!
