A personal email to thank you for kind support, and perhaps to start a conversation
The logo on your card may be printed, hand-drawn, single, or a composite like the one shown here, and will be accompanied by a hand-written thank you note.
According to your interests, I will select a range of my own research papers to send you as a bound and signed set (topics in archaeology, ecology, genetics, and ethnobotany in Asia, Pacific, and Mediterranean) (the papers are free; what I am offering is my personal selection of them)
Project leader has sketched all his life. An original sketch on any subject requested will be attempted and provided. Pencil, pen, or water colour can be requested. Pencil example is shown (gazing at an eclipse of the moon, 2012)
An antique Japanese woodblock print (hand made) personally selected for you by the project leader, from a supplier in Kyoto Japan
A phone call at time convenient for you, my workplace permitting. I mean, are you OK about giving such a large sum of money?! I will spend it as I think fit, as explained in the project description, but I would like to hear your ideas about this project and the Research Cooperative
