This past weekend, the world’s largest jigsaw puzzle, covering 300 square meters, was assembled in Novosibirsk, Russia. (The caption for the photograph says Moscow, so there seems to be some confusion on the puzzle’s exact location. I guess they could have assembled this thing more than once…)
I’m particularly amazed not by the size of the puzzle but by the fact that, according to the article, it only took about four hours to assemble it. I’ve spent MUCH longer than that on jigsaws smaller than the dimensions of my kitchen table.
