Rediscovered: Belknapius Auto from 1946

We’ve done John Hancocks from Frank Belknap Long before, but recent ones, where it seemed Young Belknapius of Lovecraft Circle fame leaned more toward printing out his name.

Kevin Cook, noted book and pulp collector, and I got to wondering if his older signatures were more holographic, fancier — courtesy Kevin’s pal Dave Kurzman we’ve got a sample from 1946.

Yeah, some flow of ink between some of the letters, but not that different from his pensmanship in the 1980s.
