Hey all! I just started bookbinding, and I'd like to find a store that stocks handmade paper or interesting papers for book covers.

I know Dick Blick Art Materials stocks paper, but I'd like to find another source.


THANKS!!!!!

Paper Source is my favorite.

I also really like Paper Depot located by the Mpls Farmer's Market.  www.paperdepotinc.c om  They sell some bookbinding supplies too.

Also, Anchor Paper has some handmade paper and bookbinding supplies.  www.anchorpaper.com  I have only been to the Mpls location, so I can't attest for the Plymouth or Burnsville stores.

I like Wet Paint on Grand Ave, just west of Snelling, though it's in St. Paul, not Mpls.  I've never made books before, but I've gotten paper there for other projects.

Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
Has alot of handmade paper (even from local artists) along with other things too like marbled paper, and book binding kits.

Thanks! I am looking for book end papers. I find that handmade paper is a bit thick for that.
