Our historical jigsaw puzzles and posters have been reproduced from original collages that were created to reflect the main social and cultural events of the latter part of the 20th century, as seen predominantly from a British viewpoint. With the exception of the 20th century version, which is an overview of the century as a whole, the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s all depict the entire decade in each case.
The concept behind the creation of these collages was to demonstrate the specific identity and significance of each decade with images of key events and personalities of the time.
The images within each collage are shown in chronological order, starting from the top left corner and weaving back and forth all the way down to the bottom right. We include, for your reference, a fully documented index that lists all the images and the order in which they occur.
Our jigsaw puzzles contain 500 pieces and give an overall size upon completion of 48 x 69cm. The poster dimensions are 60 x 80cm and have been produced to fit into standard-sized commercially available frames. These endlessly fascinating jigsaw puzzles and posters make ideal Christmas, Birthday and Anniversary gifts.
We hope you enjoy the challenge of identifying as many of the people and events depicted as you can - there are hundreds within each one, so good luck with 'piecing together the past'!
