My name is Beat – I live in Switzerland, and I have been passionate about cinema, television, music and the arts for many years. My passion in the arts culminated in me starting an autograph collection primarily through the mail since 2001. During this time, my collection has grown to more than 2,000 signatures from an eclectic range of movie stars and television actors, presenters, comedians, directors and producers, musicians, models, authors and some politicians. While most of my autographs were obtained by mail, others were bought from reputable sellers or signed in person, e.g. at conventions or at theatre stage doors in London’s West End or on Broadway.
