Helen Keller signature discovered in Japanese textbook

A book bearing the signature of Helen Keller has been discovered in a Japanese book fair.

It's believed to date to her first visit to the country in 1937 and is inscribed to a Professor Sugimoto.

Helen Keller was a deafblind author and activist

Makiko Hnayase, founder of Nippon Lighthouse - a blind charity that collects documents related to Keller, commented to The Japan News:  "I'm sure the signature is genuine. Though Keller was unable to write whole sentences, she could write her signature".

We have a rare signed photograph of Keller in our online store.
