""...Maybe the textured surface of the photo made Audrey sign it differently - the "A" in Audrey looks very hesitant and oddly-formed for example...." I am wondering this as well. But that overall even imprinted appearance is odd."

"Hi Lars If she did get it back in the early 50s maybe it is some form of secretarial. The early examples I have are much more flamboyant than yours. I would think your promotional card must be from 1950-53, and probably even pre-dates my Gigi…"

"No, this is truly from the 50s - she sent a letter and got this back with the signature."

a pug called eva replied to Lars Olav Karlsen's discussion Audrey Hepburn
"Whether this was written by hand or not it doesn't seem right to me. As Joe says it looks too elongated. It is also rather straight. Perhaps more tellingly, it is in the 70s/ early 80s style whereas the photo must be from the very early 50s. I…"

"Well Lars, I can't say anymore, I'm sorry. It would need to be seen in hand - for me anyway. "

"There is ink but no vissable indent on the back The scan does not show the ink well - buy it is there buy just light and thinner then the rest"
Wednesday
Eric K. Longo replied to Lars Olav Karlsen's discussion Audrey Hepburn
"Is the indent there but no ink? At the spot you mention - the "y""
Wednesday
Lars Olav Karlsen replied to Lars Olav Karlsen's discussion Audrey Hepburn
"No, its not a good scanner sadly. The dent in the back after presure from the pen is almost even, but lighter or not noticeble at the end of Audrey. That indicates that it is human - but it is not easy to say. The only thing I feel surtan about is…"

Eric K. Longo replied to Lars Olav Karlsen's discussion Audrey Hepburn
"Thank you. The texture of the paper is preventing me from saying much else. I would expect if she signed slowly with a fountain pen to the degree the indent suggests on such paper her signature would be more angular and unusual. Is the indent really…"

"This was the best my scanner could do:"
Wednesday
Eric K. Longo replied to Lars Olav Karlsen's discussion Audrey Hepburn
"Yes, I was agreeing with Joe re secretarials. I don't know of any either. Your postcard I would need to see in hand - the scan is not high enough res for me to see/say anything other than it looks unusual - not quite human - her signatures can…"
Wednesday
Eric K. Longo replied to Lars Olav Karlsen's discussion Audrey Hepburn
"A scan like this one I made would be useful. This is almost non-extant in terms of indent (and it is single weight as I recall), apart from a razor slice later in the sig from the nib and speed at the trail end of the "y" (this is Art…"

Lars Olav Karlsen replied to Lars Olav Karlsen's discussion Audrey Hepburn
"Yes, they were both of in collors to highlight the signature that is in a tough spot. I went and got it scaned with my scanner. It aint much better - burn hopefully it is somewhat better. If I did not missunderstand Joe he wrote that he did not know…"

Eric K. Longo replied to Lars Olav Karlsen's discussion Audrey Hepburn
"Autopens were in use by the 1950's although I seem to recall some William Bendix 3x4 that appears Autopenned with fountain. This i8nk colo0r could be indicative or a problem, and the indent if very even and deep could as well but the images do…"

Lars Olav Karlsen replied to Lars Olav Karlsen's discussion Audrey Hepburn
"It is from an old lady in Norway that got this in the mail originaly - so the only thing I know is that it is old and looks to be written by a pen (either by hand or by machine). Maybee the studio had some?"
Wednesday
Joe W. replied to Lars Olav Karlsen's discussion Audrey Hepburn
"I'm not sure if Audrey ever enlisted a secretary to sign for her. With that said, I do not think she signed this either. Seems to drawn out to be authentic. IMO."
