In the mid-seventies Takako Saito commemorates her days in Devon. The main part is called “My friends” (with drawings of cattle and cats) and another part is described as “Days in Devon” that exists of a separate booklet with drawings, pasted in de back, 28 pages, small leporello and tipped-in miniature books.
