New Puzzle! Bizarre Fish, from a 17th century Persian Book of Wonders

You were probably just thinking, "You know what we need around here? A 98 piece puzzle of bizarre fish from a 17th century Persian Book of Wonders!"

We were thinking that too. Now in-stock!

The puzzle design by Lisa Mabley has some appropriately bizarre fish whimsies. 

The image comes from a Persian 17th century book that is a re-do of an older 13th century Arabic book called the ‘Aja’ib al-makhluqat wa-ghara’ib al-mawjudat (Marvels of Things Created and Miraculous Aspects of Things Existing) by al-Qazwini.   

This is but one of many incredible illustrations in that book - see this great page from the University of St. Andrews for more miraculous things existing according to past times.
