Edith Head's Autograph

Your eyes deceive you not. That's Edith Head's actual signature.(I screamed too)
My grandfather was an art director in the fashion industry for many years. I knew he did work in that Industry, but I never thought to ask who his clients were.
I was just sitting and he says 
"Oh! Before I forget, I have something for you!"
So he led me into this room and said "Do you know who Edith Head is?" "YES! I LOVE her work!"
"Good! This is for you. 
"SHUT UP. THIS IS REAL? WHAT? SERIOUSLY? HOW DID YOU GET THIS???"
"I worked with her. I did a shoot with her where I shot her and some of her designs. She loved the photo's. Later I had this sitting on my desk and Edith came in and asked me if I wanted it signed."
*Justine passes out* haha I seriously almost did.

The thing she signed was a folder that was sent out to editors telling them about Edith Head For Vogue Patterns.
This Print was inside. I'm defiantly framing this. (The autograph on this one is a print)
