You know, it had never occurred to me for all these years, not even today when I was puttting my post together; but WHY did Tito sign his name in Cyrillic?

He was born and educated in Croatia. His father was Croatian and his mother was Slovenian. He was 34 before he went to live in Serbia, and that was quite probably the first time he had been there.

Of course, he was a Russian prisoner of war in WW1 so he may well have had some practice in Cyrillic then. But it still seems a very odd idea that when he chose the name Tito that he should not write it in Latin script. (I assume that when he was Broz he will have had a Latin signature.)

Perhaps his year in Moscow in 1935 meant he had to become fluent in Cyrillic script. Or perhaps it was a political gesture to the Serbs to show he was one of them,as well as a Croat.

But an interesting question...

Theodor Aman (1831-1891) was a Romanian painter of Armenian descent. His style is often considered to be a predecessor of Impressionism. Here is an image of an engraved stamp featuring a portrait of Aman and his autograph, and issued by Romania on September 24, 1956 to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the artist's birth, Scott No. 1111, plus an image of a self-portrait by Theodor Aman.

When I started this thread in 2011, it was on a whim. I'd been picking up stamps with signatures on them and putting them aside. Eventually I thought I'd get a real autograph book to put them in.
But now they are an exhibit for this weekend's Stamp Club bourse. Not sure what the judges will think. They tend to be pretty stuffy about these things. But if I may paraphrase our friend Blackjag, who is a fellow club member, "I really don't care!"
