  • Edward Gorey had a fondness for cats. One can only imagine what’s happening in Cat Fancy. Is a cat outside looking in the window at the pampered feline? Is the kitty on the bed seeing itself in a mirror? Gorey’s artwork proved him to be a master of the amusing, the strange, and the unexpected. He was also a writer, a Harvard graduate, and a respected book designer. His intricate crosshatched drawing makes this 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle a headscratcher!

      GOREY: CAT FANCY - 1000PC JIGSAW PUZZLE BY POMEGRANATE

      Posted by oli p on Sep 6th 2020

      I wouldn't exactly say that this puzzle is beautiful. I would call it "polyester pretty" - it comes with a very high kitsch rating. Pomegranate is known for making beautiful puzzles (among other high end, aesthetically pleasing, printed materials), and this is a beautifully made puzzle.

      Edward Gorey is genuinely fun; he's witty, his line work is unique, and his subject matter varies widely. 1000 piece puzzles tend to be finished quickly in my space, so I buy them carefully (or not at all). Thankfully, the sly usage of tonal variation, repetition, and varied line weight, make for a whimsically funny and challenging little puzzle.

      If you don't feel like whipping out the big table, but don't want to fly through a smaller puzzle, give this one a try.
