I heard of them and wanted to try them out.

My husband played this game as a child, our two sons (now 38 and 35) played as a child, so I figure it's time to get a set for the grandchildren. I thought they would be too boring for kids, but not so. In fact, I think they fostered our sons' love of literature.

BEST ANSWER: This is a standard deck of 54 playing cards with basic suits and two jokers. While the suits are still shown in the corners, the middle of each card displays a full-color illustration of a famous author. The name of the author is written beneath the illustration and a few of the books written by that author are listed. Basically, you can play any sort of card game (i.e. rummy, go fish, etc) with these cards and you'll become familiar with the authors through seeing them as you play.

Bought this for great grandchildren. We played it as children and wanted the grandchildren and great grandchildren to experience it too. Now at 75 years old we think back on those vintage games.
