UPDATE: Getting to the Roots of the Coupland Signature Mystery

In my last post, I mentioned that I found a copy of Generation A by Douglas Coupland that looked like it had been signed. By whom, I wasn’t sure — it seemed authentic, but it could have been someone just fooling around.

Here’s an update: I Googled “Douglas Coupland signature” and found that it probably is authentic.

First, I found out that Roots actually had a Douglas Coupland signature (literally!) collection last year. Here’s one of the ladies’ tees, top left.

Of course, I wanted to find an actual signature in an actual book (which is what I had in mind in the first place…) and did find it. Close — you don’t have to be a handwriting expert to see that these are probably signed by the same person. My copy’s at the bottom.

Guess I have myself a signed first edition from Douglas Coupland! Yay for me!
