"Based on Stephen Walter's stunningly detailed map of London, The Island, this jigsaw puzzle offers a chance to explore the city in a whole new way. Walter converts the city's densely packed streets into a tangle of insightful yet humorous words and symbols, which reveal far more about the city than its mere physical makeup: from the places of birth of important figures and sites of historic events, to witty observations about cultural stereotypes, geographical peculiarities and fascinating local facts. This jigsaw puzzle is made up of carefully cut puzzle pieces designed to preserve the fascinating details that make up the map. Over the years, Walter's maps have gained a cult following and this jigsaw puzzle will bring his creations to a wider audience, eager to discover more about London's history and culture through this quirky, cartographic masterpiece."--Box bottom.
