Inkblot Autograph Album

Why We Love It

In the 1900s, people would collect “ghost signatures” of friends and celebrities in special autograph books called “The Ghost of My Friends”. A fresh, well-inked signature would be folded and pressed on special paper to form elegant and devilish inkblots. Modern replicas of the autograph inkblot albums are produced by Reflections of My Friends, so you can continue this odd tradition today.
