Comptoir des Ecritures
by Georgia Fee

Comptoir des Ecritures

35, rue Quincampoix

75004 Paris

Wander down rue Quincampoix in the dusk of a wintry day and you will come upon a sensual treat that is hard to best: the Comptoir des Ecritures.  This boutique excells in soft, mood lighting, the silken calligraphy brush of ancient Japan, rolls of handmade paper that beg to be touched.  Bottles of ink and gorgeous books abound.  Here is paradise for the drawer, the printer, the watercolorist, the collager.  Step in and be transported for a moment or an hour.
