On a wish list for sure:
World Playing Cards Museum in Belgium
Fournier Museum in Spain
Miike Playing Card Memorial Museum in Japan
We look forward to seeing some of your international decks Mike, like the Piatnik Cats. Perhaps when all has been quiet for a while and you've been able to slow down a bit. Don't know where you get the energy to do all you have done in the last while, but it's very appreciated.
I've never seen an Israeli or Lo Scarabeo decks before. Maybe you can show us some time!

I moved your comment here since the Articles thread is locked to keep the info there indexed and easy to find.
Did you mean is "The Playing Card Varieties" article from that book? I actually compiled that from many different sources, but that book wasn't one of them. I got lazy and didn't list all the books and websites involved. Should do that I suppose, but I doubt I'll be able to before I head off for a month. I only just got around to adjusting the title today, been meaning to for weeks. (Playing Card Families made it sound like the article discussed Dondorf, Fournier and other families who were playing card dynasties.)
A poker book of historical material sounds interesting. I have "The Poker Encyclopedia", and the explanation of poker terms brings up some historical info.
