The Glossary is composed by a set of stamps with words coming from museological practices such as collecting, classifying, cataloguing, organizing, keeping, identifying, selecting, curating, etc. Definitions for these terms were gathered from interviewing a number of non-specialists, and their spontaneous responses were registered. Entries were then written and edited from the collected answers. 

The keywords are presented separate from their definitions, in a way that a glossary can be invented, or otherwise reconstructed by following its original organization. The system allows the formation of a text that might refer to gestures coming both from daily domestic arrangement and to specific professional works. 

[2005] 54 stamps, variable sizes, 8 inkpads, papers or booklets.
