Brought to you by the venerable De
of Third Policeman fame, Jig-Saw-Jig-
is a jig-saw puzzle which is created by
photographing a completed jig-saw,
whose subject matter is in turn a person
working on a jig-saw puzzle, with
numerous pieces scattered about.
To add to the difficulty
pieces and cut patterns of Jig-Saw-Jig-
Saw, are slightly different to those of its
origins, which it is attempting to imitate.
When the entire Jig-saw-jig-saw is half
completed, the solver takes a high
resolution photograph, which is sent
into the manufacturer as part of a
competition. One of these is chosen to
create the next generation of puzzles.

||We used to have some friends who loved Jigsaws, so what we did was buy about 6 boxes of about 10000 piece jigsaws and mix all of the pieces together in a big plastic bag. We then mailed this bag to them anonymously with no photographs attached. I don't know if they like jigsaw puzzles anymore.
||Ah reality, the only place where there are no leftover and unplaced pieces .
