The bridge community also has its share of artists, portraitists, and sketchers, who enjoy taking the features of the game of bridge and making them visual. Every bridge author, who has his/her works published, has had to select a cover for the publication. This is sometimes a difficult thing since it is a representation of the contents of the book in the form of art.

We would like to present several of these pictures, none of which are copyrighted, on this site for your enjoyment. We have attempted to ascertain whether the work is copyrighted, and if it is, it is not presented here, but only with the express permission of the artist. We have also attempted to provide the name of the publication, in which the rendering appears.

Note: The list is not organized in any manner, neither alphabetically nor chronologically. One artist may have produced more than one portrait, cartoon, or painting and these are listed separately.

Some of the renderings may not be up to standard since they may be several years old. All pictures have been presented to match their original drawing as much as possible. However, some renderings have been published on opposite pages, which cause a crease in the presentation. Our apologies if this is the case.

Note: If we have inadvertently presented any copyrighted material, rendition, or sketch, which is copyrighted, please be assured that it is completely unintentional. By sending us an email to this effect, we will, of course, delete it from this web page.

A classic among the bridge publications was authored by Carolyn Wells. Carolyn Wells wrote the publication titled The Rubáiyát of Bridge, or The Rubaiyat of Bridge (without the accents marks). A rubai is (in Persian poetry) a quatrain; or a poem in such stanzas. The designation of Rubáiyát is a derived form of rubai. The word itself is alledgedly a plural word derived from the root meaning 'four'.

Note: Any photographic material of Carolyn Wells is not available. In case any reader knows of, or possesses such photographic memorabilia, then we kindly request the contribution of a copy thereof.

The outline of the poem itself is defined as a-a-b-a, whereby the first and second lines ryhme with the fourth line, whereas the third line does not necessarily have to ryhme. An example from the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyam, as follows, illustrates this form of poetry:

VII
Come, fill the Cup, and in the fire of Spring
Your Winter-garment of Repentance fling:
The Bird of Time has but a little way
To flutter - and the Bird is on the Wing.

The Rubáiyát of Bridge, authored by Carolyn Wells and illustrated by May Lee Preston, was published in the year 2009. The original printing carried the cover as shown below. Carolyn Wells, born in the year 1862 and died in the year 1942, was an American author and also a poetress. Her birthplace is Rahway, New Jersey, United States. During her career as an author she authored and had published approxiamtely 170 books, which covered main topics such as poetry, humor, and also books for children. Her autobiography, The Rest of My Life, was published in the year 1937. Her photograph from an unknown date is shown below.

Note: May Lee Preston was born in New York in the year 1873. She studied at the Oberlin Art School and the Arts Students League in New Yor,k where she came under the influence of Mr. Robert Henri and Mr. John Sloan. May Lee Preston became involved in the struggle for women's rights upon discovering that her art school denied her admission to its life drawing classes. Preston was active in the National Woman's Party and contributed to Women Voter. She also illustrated the book, How it Feels to be the Husband of a Suffragette. May Lee Wilson married the artist, Mr. James Moore Preston, who was also a member of the Ashcan School (also known as the Ash Can School). The two both exhibited at the International Exhibition of Modern Art (the Armory Show) held in New York in 1913. May Wilson Preston died in 1949.

Mr. Franco Donatelli, born March 13 1924, and died November 11, 1995, was a cartoonist by profession. He was born in Alessandria (Lissandria in Piedmontese), a city in Piedmont, Italy, and the capital of the Province of Alessandria. The city was built on the banks of the river Tanaro, about 90 kilometers southeast of Turin. During his many years as a graphic artist and cartoonist he worked with many of the great and well-known names in the publishing business and also the film industry.

He also employed several pseudonyms during his career such as Frank Well. For his bridge-related cartoons, sketches, and drawings he employed the pseudonym of Donar Elli. He was a prolific artist, sketch artist, drawer, graphic designer. He also had and showed a zest for life, which sprung from his imagination, from his in-born creativity, from viewing the world differently and being able to put it all to paper.

Mr. Franco Donatelli is best known as the regular artist on the Zagor series. He illustrated many stories from #37 until #375 of regular series. During the 1970s he drew three stories of Mister No.

Invented and created by Mr. Bob Chambers of Texas, United States, these pictures present the bridge player with clues, from which the bridge player must deduce the meaning. The solution is always a bridge-related phrase, with which the bridge player is acquainted. These Briddles, which is a combination of the two words, bridge and riddles, are for amusement and pleasure only. A short biography in .pdf file format of Mr. Bob Chambers is presented, which has been courteously provided to BridgeGuys.com by Mr. Bob Chambers.

Information: The Ace is translated as das As in German.
However, the old-German spelling was Aß, or A with two s.
It is a translation from Latin -> French -> German.
As a promotional campaign for the German Bridge Magazin
the drafters used a comical, artistic approach and put the Ace
into the back pocket of a jeans. Since all Germans speak
English, the humor is not lost to the bridge players.
Art? You decide.
