off line person requests advice

 I was asked to post this note, perhaps someone on this list could give Ben
advice. He is not on the book_arts list.
Please respond directly to Ben Vasali at address below. Thanks.

>From: "BEN VASALI" <bvasali@hotmail.com>

>My name is Ben Vasali and I am an artist who creates artists books of
>etchings, watercolors and poems. After 7 years I recently completed an
>artist book after my lover died on the island of Santorini.  The book is a
>based on a series of dreams. It is done in the style of Persian, Russian and
>Japanese miniatures. I am a graduate from Parsons School of Design and have
>won awards internationally.
>I was curious whether you knew of any representatives or agents who would be
