Did you know the first jigsaw puzzles were created in 1762 by London mapmaker, John Spilsbury? He created them from “engraved maps pasted onto wood and cut into pieces along political boundaries.”
Putting together a jigsaw puzzle is a great way to spend downtime. We have set up a puzzle table in Clermont College Library for everyone’s enjoyment. We hope you’ll stop by and be puzzled!
