Dear Mr Walker,

I have recenly found your web-site, and am particuloarly interested in your data-base.

I have four Kaoru Kawano prints, only one of which is on your data-base - "Face". The other three are:

Camillia 2/20
Twilight 26/300
un-named silhouette landscape 41/100

They are all larger than the ones you list, being 25" x 18". They appear to have both pencil signatures and edition numbers on the bottom margin, and also have a black seal on the reverse.

They were bought in Japan in the mid-1960s by my late husband, who was working there at the time.

I hope you find them of interest. Not being very good with computers, I have failed to send pictures of the prints as an attachment, but can mail you pictures if you are interested.

Yours sincerely,

Cy Voller (Mrs)
