Format: Paperback
If you are interested in knowing the history of American playing cards, this through book is the best reference I know of. It has an amazing number of illustrations, most black & white but with a thick section of color in the middle of the book.

The authors are members of the club "52+Joker", and have done a real nice job with this book. Note that there are no playing-card rules in this book.

This book is interesting and informative. It covers the whole history of American playing cards, with information on all the major manufacturers and the decks they produced, including those still available today. Anyone who is interested in the subject will enjoy it. Some details are lacking, but overall it is very good. I would highly recommend it.
