When John Bonham realized he was going to be signing autographs he decided to practice his signature in this book called “The Children’s Encyclopedia Volume Ten”.

As can be seen in the image above John has signed the book several times practicing his signature.  Interesting to note his sister’s name written in pencil  (Deborah Louise Bonham).

Finally, here’s a closer image of the signature page.  This book is truly an amazing piece of history that has survived for all these years.
