What Wikipedia says about autographs...

on Tuesday, 12 April 2011. Posted in General

An autograph (from the Greek: αὐτός, autós, "self" and γράφω, gráphō, "write") is a document transcribed entirely in the handwriting of its author, as opposed to a typeset document or one written by an amanuensis or a copyist; the meaning overlaps with that of the word holograph.

Autograph also refers to a person's artistic signature. This term is used in particular for the practice of collecting autographs of celebrities.

    Steven Spielberg

    When I have heard that Steven Spielberg comes to my city I was deeply excited. I thought about a chance to get one of the best autograph in my collection. Spielberg has shoot scenes here in Wroclaw  to his new movie called 'St. James Place'. Basically, sets were located in Berlin and Potsdam, but a crew planned to visiting Poland for a few days. Additionally, local media spread rumors about Tom Hanks, Janusz Kaminski or Sebastian Koch are coming as well. Finally, in the middle of November, here they come.

    Sebastian Vettel:

    All the time Sebastian was surrounded by his fans when he was on his way from the Red Bull hospitality to the pit lane. He tried to write many autographs, but it was very difficult because of the hectic around and because of the bodyguards. When he was able to sign his signature was ugly.
