I serve on the Council of The Writing Equipment Society which was established in 1980 in The Drury Lane shop in London.
The Society is devoted to the conservation and study of writing instruments and accessories. Our members' interests cover pens of all types and materials, pencils, nibs, inkwells, stamp boxes, quill cutters, scriveners' knives, seals, writing slopes, blotters, letter scales, paper knives and rulers to mention but a few.
The Society has two broad objectives. First, although many members are interested in modern equipment, our primary concern is to encourage the study of handwriting equipment and related artefacts of earlier times, and of associated ephemera; we wish to record the history of writing equipment and encourage the conservation of both utilitarian and fine items.
