Just wanted to share this link with those interested in Bowie as it brings quite a lot of what we debate here to the table.
There is also a fantastic video showing Bowing signing very clearly in a happy unrushed mood which is a bonus for us Bowie fans. https://davidbowieautograph.com/blog/f/bowies-signature-variance-again
Lovely, Mark...and Cunard! :)
Those are lovely and I'd give a thumbs up on both (though I appreciate authenticity isn't being questioned). The extra loop above the "O" in the second example is unusual
Hi Tim, that second loop is more commonly seen C. 1991-1993. It is not that unusual.
HI Mark! :) Indeed, my since sold 1993 Tonight Show (Nite Flights) ticket (I think an exemplar at Davidbowieautograph.com now) had that loop and a "best wishes" as well. Tiny on that ticket... It occurs sporadically as your fine posts illustrate.
