An Autograph is a Signature of a person who is famous celebrity in his/her field and is given usually to those admirers who admire his/her creative work .
I have a dream that one day my signature too turns out to be an autograph 😉 but thats a long way to go, so I am cheering myself with collecting autographs now a days.
I collect autographs of “Indian and international Authors”.
The hobby of collecting autographs is called Philography.
I got my first autograph when I was 19 years old and also by the author on whom I had a crush , well that’s not the point because now the author is married :'( but believe me that day is still remembered by me as if it happened to me ‘yesterday’.
For few days I slept chasing that little piece of paper, hugging it. I woke up to blushing about it, and my day ended thinking about that autograph.
After a few months my hangover turned down but i developed in me a hobby of collecting as much autographs as much as possible and after that in a year I now own total of 10 autographs.
Among those one is by Ruskin Bond, a children story teller from India and also my favourite author of all times .
Another one is by Former President of India A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Sir (2002-2007).
This autograph is my strength to do something useful for the country by Science and technology.
Other international author’s autograph that I have are by Jeffrey Archer and Mani Goel and others by authors like Amish Tripathi (Pop Star of Writing ) ,Durjoy Datta (The guy with Dimple), Preeti Shenoy (Lady Dabang in writing ), Ravinder Singh (Nawab of Romance ) etc.
These all autographs are as precious to me as diamonds are!
I am on my way to create more space for my hobby and looking ahead for getting Autograph by J.K Rowling 😍.
The day I get her autographed books will be like the day I will appreciate myself for this hobby.
Some hobbies leave footprints of happiness to our ancestors after we are gone !
And I will be really proud when I can see in the future, that my kids :p asks me the story about the autographs 🙈.
Now a days philography is being replaced by “selfiegraphy” that is selfie with the author or celebrity whom we adore but I don’t like it much as
Collection of autograph is a golden way of adoring ❤ practiced since very old time so I will always prefer to keep “Autographs” with me as a treasure not the selfies.
Here are the ways to create a Impressive Autograph –
1.) Keep the First letters of the signature “Capital” and don’t let the letter look dull, they should with fluently written without any break in between.
A big beginning will be like icing to the cake.
2.)Try to write in Cursive and if you don’t know cursive writing then its the time for you to learn it and practice it.
Learning cursive writing is a lifetime investment.
Add curves to your letters, because curves makes everyone happy 😂.
Connect your other letter to the first letter in a fancy way to create more of impression.
This will be “dry-fruits”of your cake.
3.)Be creative, try to add smiles or any other specific cute in gradients like Nutella that leaves your “Cake” unfogetable ….
Haha by cake I mean “Autograph”.
And now try it and then share with me for sure ;).
