Hmmm... Best sources for general supplies are Pearl Paint, 417 South
St, (215) 238-1900 and Taws, 1527 Walnut St. (215) 563-8742. Both
have a mind boggling assortment of papers. Both have bookbinding
supplies, but I think only Pearl has Davey board.
As for papermakers, I don't know any but one starting point may be
RittenhouseTown, which bills itself as the site of the nations's first
papermill and still offers papermaking workshops. Phone # of Friends
of RittenhouseTown is (215) 441-8789.
