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…

Stig Lindberg Playing Cards

Here’s my absolute favorite set of playing cards designed by the Swedish ceramic designer, Stig Lindberg. He was not only a ceramist but a glass designer, textile designer, industrial designer, painter, and illustrator.

This set is absolutely amazing. Each suit set (clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades) has a different illustration with a great amount of detail. I really love all his work and specifically fond of this particular set which took me a while to get a hold of. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did.

If you haven’t seen the El Al playing cards designed by Jean David I’d recommend you take a look.

Consumer Reports Bill Charmatz, Roy Doty

Not too long ago, I found this great stack of magazines contained in three binders. I was in a rush but quickly flipped through a few and took one binder. After seeing what was inside, I had to go back and get the others.

Well, what we have here are some Consumer Reports magazines from late 50’s through 60’s mostly illustrated by Bill Charmatz (1945-2005) and Roy Doty (I believe he’s still illustrating). Both prolific during the 50s and 60s and continued through today (although their styles evolved). There are a few other unsigned illustrations in a few issues that I wasn’t able to identify. I was able to spot Doty and Charmatz because they signed some of their illustrations. Thanks to Scott Lindberg from (New Doccuments) for stepping in to identify Charmatz’s signature for me. Click images to enlarge.

Way too much to show. Enjoy!
