When we designed the puzzle for Isabelle Plante's Connaissance (loose translation: "knowledge") painting shown below, we definitely wanted to include whimsy puzzle pieces shaped like symbols of knowledge (yes, there is an owl...).
And since Kathryn Flocken was drawing the puzzle and she's a fantastic silhouette artist, we thought it'd be great to throw in some silhouettes of a few great thinker-writers.
But who, exactly?
Who would you choose?
Well, we made a number of lists...
The legend below shows our final selection of great-thinker puzzle-pieces.
We chose these particular folks because they have inspired us, and
because they looked good as puzzle pieces :).
