Established in 1855, Cornelissens near the British Museum is possibly the most attractive art supplier in London. Its original wooden cabinets are full of delicious things like steel nibs, gold leaf, graphite powder and all kinds of arcane preparations.
I went there to get Sennelier Le Maxi drawing blocks because I love their unusual square format and crisp creamy paper. With 250 sheets at your disposal there's no need to worry about messing up the blank page. The last time I got artist's block, my old friend John Dougill at my studio suggested that I get a hundred sheets of paper cut to the same size and work my way through them in a diligent way but at the same time not caring too much about the result. By about page 30 you really get into the flow!
