  • The Letter P, 1984 From The Ultimate Alphabet “A picture of pictures,” writes Mike Wilks. “Portrayed here you can find a painter in profile clad in P’s whose palette is charged with appropriate colors, a patchwork quilt of pertinent hues, a pineapple, a pestle, a press and some proofs (can you place the image?), a partially painted panda, a plethora of pargeting in appropriate material, a paperback publication, and plenty of patterns for you to put into perspective.” From the best-selling book The Ultimate Alphabet, The Letter P is one of Wilks’s most challenging and intricate compositions. Can you find all of the P words depicted in this 1,000-piece puzzle? If not, check out the list and key included inside.

    The art of Mike Wilks (British, b. 1947) is characterized by intensely realistic (sometimes surrealistic) detail—think art appreciation and a game of discovery, all in one. Wilks began his artistic career at 13 when he won a scholarship to art school. He ran a successful graphic design business for five years before he sold it and began writing and illustrating books in 1975. He rocketed to fame following publication of The Ultimate Alphabet in 1986; the puzzle book was a global bestseller. Each image contains dozens, if not hundreds, of items, all beginning with the same letter of the alphabet. After eight illustrated books, he established himself as a novelist with The Mirrorscape Trilogy, a fantasy adventure series. Wilks, who was the subject of an award-winning British documentary, lives in London. His drawings and paintings now reside in museums, galleries, and private collections around the world.

    Pomegranate is proud to produce jigsaw puzzles with thoughtfully conceived, engagingly intricate, and aesthetically appealing images on a solid interlocking format. The sturdy construction combined with the wide image selection and vibrant color reproduction will delight everyone from experts to first-time puzzlers.

      I really like working on Pomegranate puzzles! The pieces fit together well with very little chance of putting a piece in the wrong place plus the pieces just feel nice in your hand while assembling the puzzle. The details on this one are fun and clever. It is just right for me, a little bit challenging but not overwhelming! Love it!

      This puzzle has a lovely matt finish with beautiful artwork. The puzzle comes perfectly packaged with ziploc storage bag. There is also an enclosed pamphlet which identifies the hundreds of items in the artwork that begin with P. The pieces lock together nicely and this was a most enjoyable puzzle for two people to complete. We were so immersed in the fun of the project, that we finished in one afternoon. The completed puzzle remains on our table for now, so that we may review the many P's. I am planning to purchase the other puzzles in this alphabet set and wish there were more available.
