|Jigsaw Puzzles come in all shapes, sizes and pictures.
The first jigsaw puzzle was made around 1760, when John Spilsbury, a British engraver and mapmaker, mounted a map on a sheet of wood that he then sawed around each individual country. Spilsbury used the product to aid in teaching geography. After catching on with the wider public, this remained the primary use of jigsaw puzzles until about 1820.
From this humble beginning, has grown an entire world wide industry serving millions of jigsaw puzzle lovers.
