This is a collection of articles and essays on the history and collecting of fountain pens and pencils. Many have already appeared elsewhere in other forms. Unless otherwise noted, they are our original work. Virtually all of these pieces differ from their earlier published versions. Some have been reworked, some have had additional material added, and some are simply as written, before the introduction of typos and unauthorized editorial redactions. For more, take a look at our Vintage Pen Blog, where we often post recent discoveries and share research work in progress.
