Our first jigsaw puzzle is here
Like everyone else, during the pandemic, I kept looking for things to keep me sane in the first few weeks of lockdown. I went on longer walks, cooked my way through a cookbook or two but also started puzzling again. A hobby, I hadn't pursued for twenty years or so. Funnily enough, I wasn't the only one who caught the puzzle bug. Bloomberg spoke of a "Coronavirus Puzzle Boom" whilst The Independent and others compiled lists of the hardest or best adult puzzles to complete during lockdown.
I wasn't alone and I also came to realise, like so many others, how relaxing jigsaw puzzles can be - after a hectic day, it was something I looked forward to the most! A cup of tea and an hour or two of puzzling. That's when I thought, how great it would be to team up with one of our artists and bring it our own jigsaw puzzle. I also found it hard to find nice illustrated puzzles I liked.
Fast forward a few months and I am happy to present to you our first Typoriginal puzzle! "Pink Castle" was illustrated by the fantastic Sara Boccaccini Meadows, who has already collaborated on different products with us before. This product is by far the most exciting one yet and I hope you love it as much as I do. You can find it in the online shop now.
