Jigsaw Puzzle: Piecing Together a History
Anne D. Williams (au); Will Shortz (fr)
A jigsaw authority offers the big picture on the popular & deeply satisfying hobby that has enthralled puzzlers worldwide for centuries. Jigsaw puzzles (JP) depict scenic landscapes, city skylines, maps, great works of art, movie stars -- all shattered into oddly shaped pieces, scattered apart, jumbled into a pile, & boxed into a challenge. Discusses the cultural impact this pastime has on society, examines the minds of famous puzzlers such as Queen Elizabeth II, Bill Gates, & Stephen King, & provides a look at what goes into the construction of JP. From its origins in the mid-1700s as an educational tool for children, through the recreational craze for adults that peaked during the Great Depression, to its use in ads, the JP continues to evolve.
