Can you guess the meaning of the “+1” that follows Hirschfeld’s signature?
Answer us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hint: the + 1 does not refer to the NINA that is usually hidden in every Drawing, including this one.
When the number of NINAs in a Drawing is only 1,
Hirschfeld stopped using the numeral as a counting guide.
