Elephantaisy by André Sanchez (Heye 1000)

“Elephantaisy” by André Sanchez, part of the “Fauna Fantasies” series from Heye. This one was steady puzzling, lots of patterns. I ended up slogging through about 75 pieces of leaves at the bottom left of the image, which was probably the most tedious part. Otherwise I had a good time!

Ravensburger “The Reading Room”

A “cozy crowded space” with books kind of puzzle. Satisfyingly cozy. “Ravensburger No. 80 104” — Copyright Eduard, Artist, licensed by MGL. I liked this description: Historically, Reading Rooms were often found in towns and villages and were places where residents could read books and periodicals of the day. The British Museum boasts one of […]

Art Cafe by Otar Imerlishvili (Art & Fable 1000)

I really enjoyed this one! Beautiful, fun art, steady assembling. Lots of different patterns, and a fair amount of repetition of the patterns, with slight variants, in different parts of the puzzle. The green horn was what I ended on, and there were a lot of different shades of green to work through. (And of […]

Andy Kehoe “Inner Mystic: Wondrous Journey”

This beautiful puzzle proved fairly challenging — not least, because there were so many false matches among the puzzle pieces. I had appreciated the curvier innie-outie pieces, but while the shapes are pleasing, there were too many that mis-matched! Grr. Anyway, the real draw was the image, which was gorgeous — all of Kehoe’s paintings […]

Rex Ray 2

I really enjoy Rex Ray’s art, but will confess I enjoyed “Mylopronesta” more than this one. That image was more satisfying — not just because it has a title, although of course that does satisfy my metadata anal retentivity — but also because I enjoyed the various patterns and blobs of color more. On the […]

Japanese Woodblocks

Another Cavallini 1000-piece. These Cavallinis are a pleasure to do, with clear blocks of different pictures, collaged together. This particular collage is really beautiful and well-balanced, as is appropriate for its subject matter. (-: It had reasonable challenges in terms of similar sets of colors that were slightly different from each other in ways that […]
