Two New Photos of Eric Berne

Two new photographs of Dr. Eric Berne are being released. One is a previously released but rarely seen photo of Eric at a poker table holding poker chips. This photograph was featured in the 1970 Life Magazine review of Sex in Human Loving, published posthumously.

The second is a previously unreleased photo of Eric courtesy of his step-daughter Janet. It shows Eric, presumed to be in the mid to late 1960s, standing outside next to a building in a suit. He is holding is pipe in his left hand. The location and exact date of this photo is unknown.  There is some minor distortion of the photo but it is still excellent quality!

We hope everyone enjoys these photographs as much as we do.
