Signature

A signature (from latin: signare, "to sign") is a handwritten (and often stylized) depiction of someone's name, nickname, or even a simple "x" or other mark that a person writes on documents as a proof of identity and intent. the writer of a signature is a signatory or signer. similar to a handwritten signature, a signature work describes the work as readily identifying its creator. a signature may be confused with an autograph, which is chiefly an artistic signature.
