I love solving jigsaw puzzles, and have since I was a child. I seldom have time to do physical puzzles any more, which is one of the reasons I started visiting Jigidi.
The bright, colorful artwork of comic books lends itself well to being made into jigsaw puzzles, and in the case of Harvey comics, Warren Paper Products answered the call. Warren released an untold number of puzzles in different sizes and styles, featuring a variety of Harvey characters and artwork. They made the standard cardboard-boxed puzzles, and they also made what they called “Inlaid Puzzles”, in both rectangular and “Shaped” varieties. Due to the sheer number of different puzzles produced, this is one of the areas where the Harvey Mercheum could really use some help from fellow Harvey collectors. If you have a Harvey character puzzle, regardless of condition, please consider using the Contact the Curator form to let me know what you have! Today’s exhibit is another contribution from a friend of the Harvey Mercheum that wishes to remain anonymous, thank you!
