I wonder if that was commonly done, to have a book based on a photoplay with pictures from it?

I also got a cool vintage card game. The story of Gulliver's Travels is told on the back of the cards. There are 36 cards in all, counting the directions.

How about that! Is there like a certain amount of text on the backs of each one? And regular playing cards on the obverses?
