The postcard shown here was designed by Halldor Petursson (1911-1976) a famous Icelandic caricature cartoonist who drew 18 cartoons of the most famous chess match in history for a local newspaper.

@ Lawdoginator Good idea, which I've already thought about and will probably do sooner rather than later as initially planned ie after posting all of the games.
Good work. Then you might want to organize a guide or link to them in proper order for those of us who want to work our way through this most historic of all the world chess championship matches, as it played out.
@ Lawdoginator I only have several games left to do, which may take me awhile to get to but having gone this far I definitely intend to finish at least one "chess project" in my life!
Are you doing the whole match, or only selected games?
I don't think Fischer minded a draw since he was almost there to becoming World Champion.
I think he was very interested - but possibly not fully prepared mentally and/or emotionally to take advantage of any mistakes or errors at this stage in the match as Fischer only needed 1/2 pt to win the title.
it appears that Spassky had the advantage at the end of the game due to the f3 square for his N. well, he probably was just not interested anymore. chess is a boring game sometimes.
