Product Description

A stunning collection of puzzles by Artist John Derian.

Garden Roses  - A rose in full bloom. What is more captivating? Adapted from a nineteenth-century chromolithograph from the collection of John Derian, the artist and designer whose work with printed images of the past transports the viewer to another world, Garden Rose challenges the puzzle doer with its subtle tones of parchment and repetition of leaves and thorns, and utterly enchants with the delicate pink bull's-eye of its single, mesmerising bloom.

Shells - a beachcomber's fantasy come true. A faithful reproduction of a page from a nineteenth-century naturalist's encyclopedia, resplendent in its chromolithographic color and detail, Shells comes straight from the collection of John Derian, the artist and designer whose work with printed images of the past transports the viewer to another time and place. This impeccable arrangement of scallop shells will fill the puzzle doer's hours with the joy of immersing oneself in nature.

Sea Life - Peer into a hypnotic underwater garden. This painterly image from a nineteenth-century naturalist's encyclopedia, with its subtle chromolithographic colors and details, comes straight from the collection of John Derian, the artist and designer whose work with printed images of the past transports the viewer to another time and place. And as you piece it together, you do begin to wonder: Might one actually encounter these sea plants today, or is this a glimpse into a lost age from the ocean's vast, mysterious history?
