Greetings everyone! Thanks for those of you who played along!

Congratulations to winners Erin M. and Hadley! I’ll be reaching out to you both to send your books to you.

I thought you all might like to know a little more about the handwriting, along with the correct answers so added a little but of analysis by each name.

It’s an advantage that I know very little of the personal lives of all of these people and don’t have preformed opinions of them. At the same time I must add a big disclaimer that I’m not a professional graphologist so this is just my take on each person.

(more…)

The names of the people who match all six people to the correct handwriting will be placed into a drawing, and two people will win a signed paperback copy of The Poisoned Glass.

This contest will be open until next Sunday, July 19, 2020 at 6 p.m. (PST), when a follow-up post will appear with the answers.

  • Vincent Van Gogh, painter (most famous work is Starry Night)
  • George Orwell, writer (wrote Animal Farm and 1984)
  • Walt Whitman, poet and humanist
  • Pablo Picasso, painter, father of Cubism
  • Nikola Tesla, inventor (AC current)
  • Josephine Baker, singer, dancer

Good luck!
