Assembly

I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards. 

For the border, I laid out the ribbon-grid like cut pieces according to the 2 different shapes, then following the image on the box I placed the piece into the approx. image area of the border. Near the end, it is a matter of moving several pieces into the respective spots over and over until it all fits correctly.

I started with the clock and flowers on the lower left and located where the blue pieces fit. The titles on the books were humorous but a tad tricky there. Once I finished the big areas of colors as in the red and gold colors, I picked my way through the rest of the titles on the book which left only the colored cat. I saved that for last and it went super fast.

Comments...

The following images share the great quality of this super fun Eurographics jigsaw puzzle. It is really nice to see these images in the larger size so you get a better view. You cannot really see the small letters on the Book Titles just looking at the finished picture and the reddish-pink text is tricky to see. It sure looks terrific on the table though!!!!

The vintage glassed on the top shelf was a nice added touch to the vintage books. I like that the pieces are big and easy to handle and the quality of the larger size board pieces sure makes it easy to highly recommend this sweet little quick fix :)
