Regarding the "Names and the Whorl" thread.  I'm pretty sure someone else has noted this, except, perhaps, for the Smoothbone and trumpet parts:

Horn is a papermaker who writes a book about Silk 'trumpeting' his achievements (horn as megaphone).  Hide can be made into parchment (admittedly a paper substitute, but a still a support for writing), and horn, hide, and hoof can all be boiled into glue.  The glue can be combined with pigment to make ink.  Smoothbone sounds kind of like a pen handle.
