Synopses & Reviews
Picture Puzzle books have become a bona fide phenomenon in the game-book field, and the frenzy was launched by LIFE. LIFE Books ignited the Picture Puzzle craze with its first New York Times bestseller several years ago (replacing Suduko at Number One), and the franchise is still going strong. Though competitors have crowded the field, our books have continued to succeed. There's a reason. They're the authentic item. They're the best. And here, in the Winter Box Set, out for the Christmas season of 2011, three of the best are presented together in a collection that makes for the perfect holiday gift. These three include the very first book-that best-selling classic that has now sold more than a half-million copies-and the very latest, which is themed, perfectly, for the Christmas season: a collection of jolly puzzles that kindle the spirit and get the puzzling juices fl owing. Take these books out of the attractive slipcase cover of the Winter Box Set and the TV turns off, dinner is delayed, bedtimes are pushed later. Everyone from Grandma to the kids loves Picture Puzzles. While we change themes from book to book to keep the format fresh, LIFE attacks each subject the same way: We choose the best photography, and set up the book to make certain that there are terrific, entertaining tests for every level of player, from the kids who are tackling their first-ever puzzle to the old masters who have met every challenge in our earlier books. With the Picture Puzzle idea, LIFE's editors came up with something that was perfect for the brand's core interest, photography, and that then struck a chord in this country. The Winter Box Set is the latest-and perhaps the best yet-extension of that original idea.
