Manufacturer: Klaus-Jürgen SCHULTZ
Schauspiel, Literatur, Malerei, Musik auf Spielkarten. Selbstverlag: Hamburg, 2011. 294x295 mm. 2 vol.: 4 leaves, pp. 1 - 216; 2 leaves, pp. 217 - 414 with very numerous color ill. and a CD. Cloth.
The author of the „Kriegsspielkarten“ (War Cards) examines here the numerous cards dealing with art. He describes 67 decks from various collections, among them several unseen so far. They are cleverly ordered by topics, beginning with literature (Schiller, Shakespeare, Cervantes, Scott, Dickens...) and followed by music and painting. We’d like to specially enhance the fact that K.-J. Schultz has again succeeded, like in his former book, in detecting in many cases the original artwork used by the cardmakers. The lovingly made CD is entitled „Musik auf Karten, hörbar gemacht von Dr. Edi Brum“ (Music on cards, made audible by Dr. Edi Brum). It provides the tunes for 4 entries in the book (both in the MIDI and MP3 format). Lavishly illustrated work in a very small edition (35 copies).
