These beautiful vintage Candy Candy Illustration artbooks (Parts 1 & 2) were first published in 1976 and 1977 respectively. Yumiko Igarashi  (いがらしゆみこ) was the manga artist who drew the illustrations. Kyoko Mizuki (水木杏子) wrote the poems reflecting Candy's thoughts and feelings about her friends and loved ones.

Mahalo Nui Loa, many Thanks, Arigato, and Gamsahamnida (감사합니다)  to Kayoko-san, Geumjeong, Im Eu-gene, Kim Jee-Hyun, Candylove, and Korean Candyfan for translating  these precious poems!
