Playing Cards: Library
As Abraham Lincoln said, “A capacity and taste for reading gives access to whatever has already been discovered by others”.
This page is consecrated to different types of books and periodicals dedicated to playing cards and playing card collecting. All such materials were divided into four main parts: 1) “Books about Playing Cards”; 2) “Catalogues of Playing Cards”; 3) “Art Books Dedicated to Playing Cards”; 4) “Periodicals Dedicated to Playing Cards”.
