Schwarzer Peter mit Hundebildern

Dog-themed Black Peter game featuring marvellous playful caricatures with plenty of detail by Willy Mayrl, first published in c.1960, and various times since. Whoever holds the Black Cat card at the end of the game is unfortunately the loser. Willy Mayrl, a children’s book illustrator, had been designing for Piatnik over a long period, not just children’s cards (where he usually got his name printed on at least one card) but also adult cards both standard pattern and non-standard.
