Would someone deliberately make such a strange forgery?
Who'd chose to mess with the "B" in "Buk" in such a way?
Could it possibly been made by a very fucked-up Bukowski? Some of the letters appear to look absolutely okay
First of all, no. I don't see the letters that appear to look right to you. I don't see a single thing in there that looks right.
Secondly, why would Bukowski be inscribing a 14th printing of The days run away (click the link for the large image) to someone who we're supposed to believe was important to his work as a writer ("thans to you")?
