Arthur Szyk in Library of Congress

Jewish cartoonist and caricaturist is a perennial favorite in the area. The Library of Congress displaying a couple of pieces of his original art for playing cards in the "Words Like Sapphires" Hebraicia exhibit, and is selling some new products based on his work - a book "Heroes of Ancient Israel: The Playing Card Art of Arthur Szyk" and two decks of the cards, a 'Player's Deck' and a 'Collector's Deck.'  I love Szyk's work and bought one of each.

One of Szyk's prints of the Declaration of Independence is on permanent display at the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Museum, I discovered yesterday.
