My first order arrived last weekend from Anderson Pens and with it the PenSpeak Fountain Pen Aficionado Glen Bowen book.
The book title is “PenSpeak – The Secret Language of Pen Lovers” by Glen B. Bowen.
What is amazing to me is this hardback book from 1996 is available at Anderson Pens on sale for $3 each! If you or someone you know has a fountain pen or are considering getting one this would be a GREAT gift to give to yourself and/or to others with an interest in fountain pens!
“Basically, Bowen did a “greatest hits” brain dump of his three decades of pen-collecting knowledge.”
– April 2010: Ten Things I Learned from Glen Bowen’s PenSpeak.
The book format is all text, there are no photos, nor illustrations. It has 223 pages with a great fountain pen vocabulary!
From the Amazon listing – PenSpeak
“… basic information on all aspects of pen collecting including where to find them trading and buying, brands, makers, limited, embellished and artist editions, using them, publications, organizations and clubs and related topics.”
From the Anderson Pens listing – PenSpeak
“The Secret Language of Pen Lovers” by Glen Bowen is a book for new pen collectors. This dictionary of pen terms and basics is hard bound and 223 pages long. A good guide to the basics of pen collecting.”
I’m so glad I ordered this book! Happy Thursday on this very fast paced week!
