Atlanta's Sam Flax South, the art supply and paper emporium on Northside Drive, is moving to new digs: Brookwood Place at 1745 Peachtree Street.

Come September, the vast selection of paints, pencils, pastels, and canvases (not to mention the books from Taschen, stationery from G. Lalo, journals from Moleskine, leather albums, and array of ribbons) will be housed in an expansive two-story space formerly occupied by the Brookwood Kroger. And the items mentioned above are just the tip of the iceberg. I've always appreciated the variety of paper stocked here but only recently learned that Mr. Flax got his start at a small stationery shop.

Although a big moving sale is currently underway, all the wares are still neatly organized. I left with some note cards in chocolate and yellow but lingered over G. Lalo's rich raspberry and lavender offerings because the latter reminded me of the shades on this cover -- Linda McCartney: Life in Photographs, one of many large tomes arranged by the door.
