Autograph as art: unusual signatures of celebrities

Categories: Celebrities | Culture

John Hancock, president of the Second Continental Congress, the first governor of Massachusetts, was the owner of one of the most famous signatures. When he signed the US Declaration of Independence, he deliberately made the signature so large that, in his words, "the fat old king could read it without glasses." This trick was remembered by everyone so much that the name of John Hancock in America became a colloquial synonym for the word "signature".

Bored Panda has collected a collection of celebrity autographs that are in no way inferior to Hancock's signature-if not in size, then in beauty.
