Sign on the Squiggly Line

One time Bob Blechman came up to the desk where I was working and offered me this:

It's a thermal printed invitation to an exhibit he had with Alexa Grace, Ed Sorel, and Edward Gorey.

All four artists signed the invitation.

Gorey's autograph -precise, ornate. Sorel -a scribble that holds meaning. And Blechman's signature, something I was very familiar with, each letter straining so hard to be perfect it's line and form vibrate.

My literary agent claims to have worked at a bookshop where Edward Gorey was banned for shop lifting...
