Hi Loris,

I think you wouldn't find a "store" in the sense of a storefront on the
street somewhere... But if there are commercial printers they're getting
their supplies from some place... Do you have what we call "yellow
pages"-- that is, a phone book that lists businesses by type? If so, look
under printers -- that's where I found one of my first (and best) gallons
-- I called a printer & asked where THEY got THEIR gum arabic. They named
a place in Yonkers, a "rim" city. I phoned & sent a check; they mailed.

  I'm trying to visualize it... of course I'm prejudiced in favor of a
nice rag artists' paper, but trying to keep an open mind -- Is it anything
like what I think is called Tyvek (?) that the US post office uses for
priority mail & businesses use for large envelopes? It certainly is
indestructible... tho to me unlovely. But maybe that's something else
entirely ? (If I were Mark I'd have something to say about yuppo-ies,
good thing I'm not.)

meanwhile, thanks for the info...
