R. K. Burt and Company Ltd. is a leading London based wholesale paper supplier and distributor and was the first to introduce and supply fine art papers in bulk to the UK.
Our initial range included the now familiar mill names such as Arches, Fabriano, Hahnemühle, Lana and Rives.
The RKB Gallery was created in November 1999 in our Grade Two listed Union Street site. Its nearly 1000 square feet of exhibition space in Southwark, a fast changing area of London which has seen many recent developments. Read more...
