Updates to the book
Raphael Kirchner and his postcards. New edition

A fascinating aspect of the postcard collection is that it can never put an end to the search.
Almost a year after the publication of our book, a few but interesting new pieces have been added.

In this page we report the updates to the new edition, as we receive new information, also thanks to the collaboration of all readers of the book and of the site.

The drawing shown on the unsigned postcard F.10 is the same, slightly modified, of the signed postcard E.21-1.
(See pages 147 + 162 of our new book)

We still have no information regarding the SP jewelry company operating in 1907 in Birmingham.
We hope that some willing inhabitants of this hard-working city can provide us with useful news.
