Chris,

All the art shops that I seem to find have a huge range of stuff for all kinds of art except drawing - no curves, circle templates, decent pencils etc. Am I just unlucky out in the sticks?

Cheers

Tim

Having been involved with the retail art trade for over 20yrs, the reason that you are finding it hard to get drawing office supplies is that there just is not the demand for them these days. All the commercial stuff is done with CAD and even the art collages do most of the work on computer.

Thats a good price for the leads, the shop I have contact with will only get them in to order now as most people fall over when you tell them £7.50 for a pack of 12 leads. They do stock french curves, basic circle templates and automatic & clutch pencils :D

I remember when we would sell at least 5 Rotring technical pens a day, now only get them in to order and that's maybe one every 6mths.
