Our History
In 1923, two UCLA Students Named John McManus and Elder Morgan got together and decided to open a store.  Over the years, this store sold art supplies, offered book-binding services and stocked an incredible array of handmade paper.  This legendary downtown treasure, has stocked every type of paper, envelope and invitation accessory imaginable.
Cut to today....
Some 80 years later,  McManus and Morgan is still the place to find intriguing and aesthetically pleasing parchments.  An unusual selection of hand-marbled papers hang alongside dark colored sheets made from the pith of the papyrus plant.  There is hand-pounded bark from central Mexico and a range of Nepalese offerings hewn from rice, straw silk and grass.  Additional offerings include handmade envelopes, stationary and journals.
