Old Style Horn Book Puzzle (Double Sided)


Mom... We solved the Puzzle!

Horn Book Puzzle
Double sided
In Frame.

These horn book puzzles were made the way that the old puzzles were made. No pieces interlock. Notice that the cuts were often made in a series of gently curving lines. The Double Sided version of this puzzle comes in a frame in which you put the pieces as you put them together. But watch out. Both sides are the same. Is that piece that you are holding upside down or right side up?!





Author Angela Schofield writes "The world's first jigsaw was made in the 1760's when John Spilsbury, a teacher at harrow School, cut up a map of the British Isles. He gave the pieces to his pupils and asked them to remake the map correctly. At first jigsaws were meant to make geography and history more interesting. They were called dissected puzzles and they did not interlock. It was not until the early 1900's that a fretsaw was used to cut the pieces into zig'zag shapes. Then they were called Jigsaws, Zagsaws, and Zig Zags."
