About that rubber stamp:

One of the most extraordinary moments in the process of researching this book was the day a Kopp family member sent me a scan of a letter that Constance Kopp wrote during the Kaufman case. It was just a simple note thanking Deputy Morris for his help, but you can imagine how amazing it was for me to get to see her expressing herself in her own words (not quoted in a newspaper, which could be inaccurate), and–best of all–to see her handwriting.

I think her signature is lovely, and I thought it would be nice if she could sign some books.
