“Letters and Numbers,” from the Russell Manufacturing Company, is a curious creation. It’s essentially an alphabet book; some of the letters are repeated to pad the deck out to 40 cards, which are arranged into four suits (Planet, Moon, Star and Comet) of ten cards each. Several games are suggested; but children are encouraged to make up their own.
But the pictures are handsome; and the gravure process makes those colors delicious.
