brucebThis glossary by author, illustrator, and poet B. H. Bentzman is included here with its author’s kind permission.

I have enhanced the original version of this glossary by adding images and by adding cross-references between related entries. Except for these emendations, the text is ab origine, as I received it from Bruce. The following is Bruce’s introduction:

Paper and pen
“I have attempted to collect words concerning paper that might be of use to fountain pen users; and, in an attempt to emulate other scholars, I have as often as not plagiarized from other glossaries. This is a living glossary and I will consider any new inclusions, or for that matter deletions.”
