Re: Signature/Autograph Database?

Subject: Re: Signature/Autograph Database?
by Beren on 2008/12/18 15:30:12

I must hold the largest collection of signature samples in on 'off line' database... I have samples over 1500 Tolkien autograhs and from early to late signatures. I have made it for my own use and also because I was studying the subject. It was my initial idea to publish a large article or write about in a book. But it scares me a lot to have 'public' and 'online' resources like this. It is already so bad on the market that almost monthly we can find some fakes out on the market.

Resources should stay in hands of experts (it took me years and many hours to compile) and not freely available to people who want to fake stuff.
