I have a copy of the, lessons originally by jan pije, updated (1 March 2016) by jan Lope -- to fill in any gaps, and aim to study these thoroughly next.
I have made a new version (for myself) of the AEI/ABC graphics/14 letters of tokipona alphabet, by jan Nikita(?).

If i find anything in the updated lessons, i will let you know for sure.
I made a list and pencil sketch of the letter/word combinations, keeping all but the three i mentioned.
I can either scan it and post here, or make a quick edit with a paint program, and upload it here.
Is the original author of the graphics in this forum? Do you have the original graphic that can be edited, maybe?

I thought the non tokipona word for E would be nice to be replaced with a native tokipona word:
esun :- market, shop, bazaar, business, transaction.
L luka: hand/arm, five - is replaced by:
lipu :- paper, book, card, ticket, sheet, (web-) page, flat and bendable thing -- for me it was easier to picture
M mani: money, material wealth, currency, dollar, capital-- just seemed out of place, so i replaced it with:
mun :- moon, lunar, night sky object, star, which i find more enduring and endearing.
It's a great graphic- and this, slightly edited version, is what i use now, to remember the letters of the tokipona alphabet.

Ay, Bee, Cee ... Jay (?) or maybe phoneticaly: Ahh, Bir, Cir, Dir, ... Jot?
Considering tokipona is an international language, it would be nice to have some kind of guidance here i imagine.
