Horses In Japan
Vivienne Kenrick
J.A. Allen 1964

Book. Long-term resident of my TBR pile.

Writer. Japan Times: Clips List, Japan Times: Obituary

Letters. K. Can one hate a letter? I have been saddled with K all my life. I’ve never figured out how to make it look good. J. I had no idea that Romans had swashes. “The letter J originated as a swash letter I, used for the letter I at the end of Roman numerals when following another I, as in XXIIJ or xxiij instead of XXIII or xxiii for the Roman numeral representing 23.” Wiki

Thank you for reading,
