The Soroyama piece was one of our few "second rights" pieces. Meaning it was
NOT done originally for us. We got it from a stock catalog. If we were to use
it again, we would have to pay again. Being now in a different state, I don't
know Jim's thinking on Maria card art, but I imagine that if there were a card
of her it would be new art by one of "our" artists.



These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
