For me, Art Brown’s retail store located at 2 West 45th Street in New York City is a paper, pen, and ink lover’s dream come true.  “One of America’s leading Fine Writing Instrument Dealers. In business more than 83 years.”

The most Rhodia I have ever seen in one place – and there was yet another free standing rack filled with the new planners and smaller tablets.

Clairefontaine journals in every size, shape and color.

082109 035

Miquelrius and Moleskine journals as well as several brands that I wasn’t familiar with. (I spy a Quo Vadis red Habana in the upper left of this picture…)

Every color of J. Herbin ink right at your fingertips!

082109 039

Noodler’s inks….

082109 038

Diamine inks….  and there were loads of other ink brands as well- some not as familiar to me as these three. I purchased a bottle of the hard to find Sailor Nano Black ink.

And my oh my, does Art Brown sell pens! We were in the store the day the new Sailor Realo was introduced in America- and were also quite fortunate to have our Sailor pen nibs tweaked by Mr. Nagahara from the Sailor Pen Company.

I regret not having spent more time in the store, but  I was actually afraid to look at the pens because I would have been there for days and I needed to get back to Port Authority to catch my bus.  I can’t WAIT to go back. Next time, I’m buying a pen for sure!

Retail store located at 2 West 45th Street, New York NY 10036.
Hours: Mon-Fri 9:00am-6:15pm Sat 10:am-6:00pm

  1. I can’t help myself. I try to walk by but it never works. I always come out with something. Lately it’s been Rhodia pads and notebooks and Acme pens and additions to my fountain pen ink collection and a new fountain pen and…..well you get the idea. What a store.

  3. I’ve done business with the fine folks at Art Brown and they have always been very gracious. Their shipping is quick and very well packaged. But I haven’t been to the east coast for nearly twenty-five years. I’d love to visit the store.

    Thanks so much for the great photo’s Stephanie.

  5. One of my favorite stores to spend Saturday mornings wandering around. The next Interntaional Pen Show is in late October, I’m looking forward to seeing what’s new.
