Paperweight is a collection of writings by Stephen Fry, first published in the United Kingdom in 1992. The book contains a wide selection of Fry's journalism, including comment pieces, reviews and criticism. There are transcripts of several radio performances, including 22 appearances from BBC Radio 4's Loose Ends show in the character of eccentric Cambridge philologist Professor Donald Trefusis, who appeared as a major character in Fry's first novel, The Liar. The book also includes the script of a play, Latin!, an early work by Fry set in a public school, which won the "Fringe First" prize at the Edinburgh Festival in 1980. It had a 2009 revival with performances opening on June 23 at The Cock Tavern Theatre in London, directed by Adam Spreadbury-Maher.
A paperweight is a small solid object heavy enough, when placed on top of papers, to keep them from blowing away in a breeze or from moving under the strokes of a painting brush (as with Chinese calligraphy). While any object, such as a stone, can serve as a paperweight, decorative paperweights of glass are produced, either by individual artisans or factories, usually in limited editions, and are collected as works of fine glass art, some of which are exhibited in museums. First produced in about 1845, particularly in France, such decorative paperweights declined in popularity before undergoing a revival in the mid-twentieth century.
