Jerome Snyder Book of Bridge

To keep up with my last Stig Lindberg playing cards post, here’s the 1961 Sports Illustrated Book of Bridge written by Charles Goren and illustrated by Jerome Snyder. He was a Self-taught and self-made illustrator who became Sport’s Illustrated first Art Director in the 50’s.

It’s a very thick hardback book, mostly heavy on the text with a slip case. Snyder’s illustration appear as chapter openers. Slip Case is printed in four colors and the inside is black and red with a middle section in four color. As usual if you haven’t heard of Jerome Snyder, google him and drool…
