This is a 296 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of Joe Vaux's painting, Message in a Bottle. Puzzle features themed whimsy pieces and some skeleton bone connectors; puzzle design by Tara Flannery. This puzzle has a straight edge, but it's more difficult than an average puzzle. All our puzzles are laser-cut from 1/4" wood, and made in USA. Packaged in our standard pine wood box.

Review: If you're looking for some creepy artwork to go along with your puzzle, look no further. Joe Vaux never disappoints and we always look forward to working his images. Due to the darker coloring, this one was a little more challenging for the piece count.

Review: Fun how it is so topsy turvy with the upside down figures. Probably more enjoyable to do without using the picture much for guidance as there are repetitive looking figures (the red ships, the skeleton crew). Also, (for me) some of the challenge came at the end when I was left with mostly dark/black/blue pieces. The picture wouldn't have helped much at that point.

Review: This one is a roller coaster. Take a Dramamine before you start trying to figure out which direction the numerous, active elements are facing. I really enjoyed this one.
