||Between 1930 and 1934 Kiyoshi is known to have designed 13 prints, seven of which
were self-published--including his famous "Tipsy" mogu-hanga image. Twelve of Kiyoshi's prints
were shown at the 1936 "Toledo Exhibition."
These 3 uncatalogued designs have been authenticated by a well-respected Tokyo print dealer
and by Tokyo's Sakai Museum.
