Dear Puzzlers,
Following
your
encouragements
and suggestions,
we have prepared
a new collection
for 2011, inspired by the world’s
most wonderful works of art. This
year, we have paid particular attention to contemporary art with
new works by Matisse, Klee and
Kandinsky. We have also continued our discovery of little-known
19th-century painters, such as
Béraud, Tissot and Turpin. I hope
that you will have as much fun
doing these jigsaw puzzles as we
had making them!
Help us to spread the word about
our wooden jigsaw puzzles of artwork to your friends and family;
they make for original and appreciated gifts! Don’t forget that
they can be personalised for your
friends or for any business communication campaign.

J IGSAW PUZZLES NOWADAYS
The pleasure of puzzling in wood
Story of jigsaw puzzles
Our jigsaw puzzles are made
of poplar wood, a renewable
and ecologic matter.
The intellectual pleasure to resolve the tricks
created by the craftwoman.
The craftwoman separates the
colours, isolate the distinctive
elements to create the maximum of
difficulty. Each time a cutter makes a
puzzle, he or she creates each piece
individually.Our puzzles are 3 more
time more difficult than cardboard
ones.
Artistic jigsaw puzzles
We offer nearly 200 different models coming from the
greatest museums in the world. It is a unique artistic and
cultural choice. The shapes depend on the painter’s style
and use of brushstrokes. The motif also plays a part : pieces
of sea will have wavy shapes, the sky will have cloud shapes,
stone will be made of squarrer pieces.
The craft worker is guided by respect for the work of art.
Jigsaw puzzles were invented
in England in the 1760s. Jigsaw
puzzles for adults appeared around
1900 in the United States. They
became fashionable in Boston high
society, then in New York. Cut out
precisely along the colour lines,
they were not only very difficult
but also very expensive. The
russian aristocracy too became
keen puzzlers, and brought the
game into France under the brand
name Véra.
Works of art
The saw is very thin and the line of cut is hidden in the
drawing. The saw is nearly invisible once the puzzle is
completed. That is why many puzzlers like to frame their
Luxury boxes
Our wooden art puzzles have luxury boxes. Gilded with
fine gold, the thick cardboard boxes are then
covered with cellophane identical to the
cellophane used by the

Michèle Wilson started her
business in 1975, following on
from Véra where she had learned
the craft. She ran the expanding
Michele Wilson puzzles until
1997. Her handmade wooden art
puzzle business is now continued
by ardent puzzler Sophie OlléLaprune and her enthusiastic
team.

Testimony from a jigsaw puzzle maker
Before cutting, I look carefully at the painting … I become
absorbed in the universe of the work, I look at how the painter
added his touches of colour. It is important to consider how to
bring out each little detail, and respect the painter’s desire to
emphasise a certain aspect. Then, piece after piece, a pace sets
up and you get carried away by the work. That’s why the pieces
are always shaped differently!

Before putting the jigsaw puzzle together, I turn over all of the
pieces to see if there are groups of shapes and colour. Then, as
the jigsaw puzzle comes together, you notice the details of the
work, highlighted by the way in which the jigsaw puzzle has
been cut up. You start to understand the composition of the

Matisse transformed the real space

figure is treated as a part of the decor.
It is the colours that give depth to the

« Ce n’est pas le sujet du tableau …qui fait la difficulté du puzzle, mais la subtilité de la
découpe...L’art du puzzle commence avec les puzzles de bois découpés à la main lorsque celui
qui les fabrique entreprend de se poser toutes les questions que le joueur devra résoudre,
lorsque, au lieu de laisser les hasards brouiller les pistes, il entend lui substituer la ruse, le piège,
l’illusion… »
