In 1967 Haku maki produced his alphabet sires, Poem A-Z this includes all letters of the alphabet, Here we show Poem W a strong rendering of the hiragana for You The image has a bold white sun n the top half with two dashes of rain-like strokes. It is in wonderful condition, It was probably distributed by Yoseido Gallery in Tokyo and later framed and matted by xx in the US Print measures: 17 x 17.5 inches 23/50. I have rarely had to work so hard to chase Maki An ill-advised seller tried to deny this to me but a good friend brought it home. Many thanks to David Bieling for making sure I own it and to Mr. F Ushizawa for telling me what it meant This is an early use of a sun in a Maki print.
