Puzzle of the Day – Beer Bottles

Are you a beer drinker? Do you think you will become one someday? If so, or if you want to learn more about the beer culture, today’s jigsaw puzzle of the day might just be the right thing for you. Made by Piatnik, with a finished size of 26.5″ x 17.4″, it has as many as 1000 pieces, so you’d better get some six packs ready so sample while you’re assembling it. It will not only make the puzzling more fun, but you will also be able to taste and enjoy some of the different beers featured in the image at the same time you’re assembling their bottles.

Needless to say, a beer bottle stands for more than just beer. It stands for a recipe, sometimes even for a history, but also for a unique taste, flavour and colour. A Leffe is nothing like a Carlsberg and a Carlsberg is nothing like a Stella Artois. And don’t even try to compare those two to a Corona or worse, a Guinness. You might be accused of sacrilege by some.

The different beer bottles in this puzzle have different styles, different histories, and a sociological imagination would ascribe them different social communities. There are certainly Guinness drinkers that distinguish themselves from Carlsberg drinkers, and Corona drinkers that have nothing in common with the first two.

Puzzle Warehouse, the largest jigsaw puzzle store in the world, supports your quest for knowledge and your passions by offering you this beer puzzle at an attractive price. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn new things about beer types and beer bottles. You might even find it useful one day, when you’ll be able to impress your friends by recognizing different brands of beer only by looking at the bottles.

Football Jigsaw Puzzles

Do you like football? Do you have a favorite team? Do you wear your team’s colors all day long? Do you like to share your passion with others? Well, if you do, then you will certainly like the football jigsaw puzzles that you can find at Puzzle Warehouse.

Football is one of the toughest sports in the world, although you will probably hear that same line from various other sports practitioners. Even though the players are protected, unlike their cousins the rugby players, they are still under a tremendous amount of pressure and they put their health and bodies on the line with every game. If you don’t think that’s right and you’re wondering how it’s like to be on a football field, just imagine a 250 pounds athlete running full speed towards you, with a helmet on. Do you think he will stop? Do you think you can stop him? It’s like trying to stop a freight train. And if a freight train hits you, well, you’re in for an ambulance ride.
Football players hit each other full speed every day. And yet, with hundreds of hours of training and a strict life regimen, they manage to survive the hardness of the game, even if some of them pay the price when they get old.

If you like the game and respect the players, the football jigsaw puzzles are the right thing for you. And don’t worry; there are many football themed images to choose from. Starting at 150 pieces and going up to 2000 pieces, there’s certainly a jigsaw puzzle that you will enjoy and take home to assemble during the game tonight.

Van Gogh Jigsaw Puzzles

Unfortunately for the puzzle lovers, Van Gogh did not make jigsaw puzzles. But he did something much better: he painted. And he did a great job, as he is considered today one of the world’s greatest painters. The Dutch painter’s work has been categorized as post-impressionism by the critics, but the thing that matters the most, in Van Gogh’s case, is not the glory his work has known after his death, but the tragedy that lead to it.

If one tried to describe his life in only one phrase, that phrase would be: Glory is the sun of the dead. Nothing is less true in Van Gogh’s case. He had a miserable life and suffered from anxiety, with frequent episodes of mental illness. And if that hadn’t been enough, he died young, at 37.

Still, his paintings are true works of art. And, just like any other work of art, they are extremely rare and expensive. Fortunately, Puzzle Warehouse has a solution for all of the Vincent Van Gogh lovers who can’t afford an original painting: Van Gogh jigsaw puzzles. These reproductions look nearly as good as the original and require you to put some work into their assembling.

You won’t undergo the whole process of creation, just like Van Gogh, but you’ll get at least a part of the feeling painters get when they see a newly born world taking shape under their eyes with every brushstroke. Every piece you put in its right place will bring you closer to the painting and to Van Gogh’s world.

Puzzle of the Day – Woman with a Parasol, Spain

Today’s jigsaw puzzle of the day is a dreamy one. Though it is titled, “Woman with a Parasol, Spain,” it is much more than that. The name suggests a woman, a sunny day and an exotic, beautiful landscape. But the truth is that once you look at it, you’ll realize that the scene is actually taken from an idealistic, dreamy love story. One that you will have to narrate yourself, according to your own feelings and desires.

A beautiful silhouette, a white dress, a parasol and a hat make the intriguing main character, looking back through her dark sunglasses on a past she is ready to forget. You can see footsteps ahead of her in the sand and, right where they stop, an old luxury car and another silhouette waiting in a dark colored suit.

Could it be her lover? Or could it be something deeper and much more complicated? What does she think about as she approaches? What is she leaving behind? Why the pleasant sadness that you can identify in her eyes, half-hidden behind those protective sunglasses?

If you really want to find out, you’ll have to visit Puzzle Warehouse and get this amazing jigsaw puzzle of the day by Educa. With each one of its 1000 pieces, you’ll get closer to completing this beautiful story and solving the mystery behind the white dress, the dark suit and the gold sand. With a finished size of 26.75″ x 18.75″, this jigsaw puzzle looks so great you will have to frame it and put it on your wall, just like you would do with a painting.

Rosie the Riveter Puzzle

Hello propaganda! Rosie the Riveter is an American cultural icon, and stands for all the American women who worked in factories during World War II. She represents especially those women who helped produce munitions and war supplies, those who supported the war effort with their bare hands and their sweat.

The first famous picture of Rosie the Riveter is authored by J. Howard Miller, an artist from Pittsburgh who cleverly used the slogan, “We can do it,” in order to gather support for the war. As iconic as it became, the poster should not be praised too much if you like peace and hate useless violence.

World War II, despite the propaganda made in each and every one of the countries involved, was still a war, and a very devastating one. No matter what posters like these say, it wasn’t a just war, and we can hardly even associate those two terms. There was a Rosie the Riveter in most of the countries involved in the war, and she should be remembered, indeed. But not as an exemplary individual who loves her country. She should be kept in mind as a reminder of the greatest war there ever was and probably also as a useful learning tool for those studying propaganda and political communication.

Such an event shouldn’t happen again and it is a disaster that we, unlike Rosie, can prevent. You can find a Rosie the Riveter puzzle at Puzzle Warehouse, featuring 1000 pieces and a finished size of 26.5 x 19.25 inches. Let the slogan motivate you in your effort to assemble the jigsaw puzzle: If Rosie could, you can do it as well.
