    [synopsis] => Written by collectables expert Susan Brewer, the book covers the world of autographs, both beautifully-illustrated autograph books from the days when ordinary people signed them for friends with thoughtful poems or illustrations, to celebrity and highly collectable autographs. Hundreds of verses and reflective messages are included, as well as many humorous entries gleaned from autograph albums over the years.

The book begins with a general overview of autographs, autograph collecting and autograph books, has a chapter on preserving and storing autographs, advice on how to collect them and ends with a directory of auction houses which specialise in ephemera. Examples of autographs include Victorian politicians, Prime Ministers, royalty, artists, actors, sportsmen and ordinary people who took the time to think up clever rhymes or stunning illustrations. Aimed at the collectable market but also nostalgia as so many people used to collect autographs at stage doors or end of pier shows. This book will appeal not only to the collector but to anyone interested in social history and our changing way of life.
