World Landmarks 42,000 pieces

Latest update on this new puzzle from the Spanish Association for Puzzles!

*Will measure 24.5 x 5.15 feet ( 7.49 x 1.57 meters)

*The puzzle is named “World Landmarks” and was illustrated by Adrian Chesterman, the same artist who did the previous largest single image “Wildlife” (also by Educa)

*The release date in Europe is November 20, 2017; I have no information on when it would be available from stores in the US

*The initial suggested sales price is 350 euros (approximately $418 USD) That’s not too bad, that’s approximately what I paid for the Disney puzzle and that included shipping from Germany to the US.

I’m really tempted by this one. I love the detail in Adrian Chesterman’s puzzles, and the colors are always gorgeous. It looks like it would be fun and interesting to assemble, doesn’t it? It does to me! But what in the world would I do with this puzzle? The Disney is still in sections and napping underneath my bed!

    Have you heard of Book Depository? It’s a UK based website that is affiliated with Amazon UK. No matter how much your order total is, they ship worldwide for free. Sounds too good to be true, I know, but I’ve ordered from them a couple of times (I’m in the USA) and all went well. Book Depository primarily carries books but I have come across some puzzles and other non-book whatnots when browsing their site. Maybe you can see if they have a pre-order listing for this specific puzzle.

    Hi,

    This picture is amazing and again Educa did a “real” big size puzzle not like the 2 bigger ones from Ravensburger (Disney-40320)) and worst, from Grafika (Around the World-48000) that are only assembled stand alone puzzles. They even sell the inside pictures as single puzzle…

    Anyway, I got Wildlife and I only made the 2 first parts till now 🙂
    This look very nice and colorfull. Even if Educa only use the standard form (except few curve border), no special form and they are the “same” sin 1 on 2 but this make it easier to assemble… But perhaps less fun too…

    About what to do with those big puzzles, you can frame some part alone or use a corner…
    On Wildlife, I saw it is a possiblity to get every 2 parts in a stand alone frame as it is no animals cut on a vertical line. I think it is the same on that new one too.
    This make it easier to put on wall as you get a frame of 1.6m high and 1.15m weidth !

    You could give it to a school or hospital or any other association to cover a wall too 🙂

    If you take that one, I wish you a lot of fun! 🙂

    PS: I am currently into the World Puzzle Day, an international “contest” where you do your own puzzles from the 1st Januray to the 28th February. It is a good motivation and a good way to see lot of different puzzles from everywhere 🙂

    1. Hi Lestat,

      Thanks for commenting. I hope you’re enjoying Wildlife, it looks like a beautiful puzzle! I would like to donate my finished Disney puzzle to the children’s wing of the local hospital, still trying to work it out. Enjoy World Puzzle Days, and thanks for checking out my blog. Happy Puzzling!
