L. Cornelissen & Son WC1

I am a sucker for art supply shops (and stationery shops in general actually) and one of my favourites is L. Cornelissen & Son on Great Russell St in Bloomsbury.  It is a wonderful shop - when you walk through the door you feel like you are on the set of a Harry Potter film.  Powdered paint colours are in tall glass jars, with weird names like Caput Mortuum (which adds to the magician vibe) and old fashioned wooden paintbrushes are hung in bunches on the wall.  There is an amazing selection of sketchbooks and other art supplies also.  I really love this shop - and of course it is my favourite 'hood, Bloomsbury.
