Product Description

A stunning collection of puzzles by Artist John Derian.

Rose Garden  - A rose in full bloom. What is more captivating? Adapted from a nineteenth-century chromolithograph from the collection of John Derian, the artist and designer whose work with printed images of the past transports the viewer to another world, Garden Rose challenges the puzzle doer with its subtle tones of parchment and repetition of leaves and thorns, and utterly enchants with the delicate pink bull's-eye of its single, mesmerising bloom.

The City of New Yorkohn Derian is an artist and designer whose work with printed images from the past transports the viewer to another world.

Featuring a nineteenth-century map used in an advertising campaign, The City of New York shows a long-lost Manhattan, the island bristling with docks and surrounded by boats, the city an impenetrable grid of squat brick and brownstone buildings punctuated by church steeples and tiny patches of green. And a mystery: The Brooklyn Bridge wouldn't be completed for another four years, yet it looks so real . . .

Bower of RosesJohn Derian is an artist and designer whose work with printed images from the past transports the viewer to another world. Now Derian expands his beautiful line of puzzles, wrapping paper, notebooks, notepads, and stickers with this all-new 1,000 piece puzzle, featuring mesmerising 19th-century artwork sourced from old and rare books.

Shells - a beachcomber's fantasy come true. A faithful reproduction of a page from a nineteenth-century naturalist's encyclopedia, resplendent in its chromolithographic color and detail, Shells comes straight from the collection of John Derian, the artist and designer whose work with printed images of the past transports the viewer to another time and place. This impeccable arrangement of scallop shells will fill the puzzle doer's hours with the joy of immersing oneself in nature.

Sea Life - Peer into a hypnotic underwater garden. This painterly image from a nineteenth-century naturalist's encyclopedia, with its subtle chromolithographic colors and details, comes straight from the collection of John Derian, the artist and designer whose work with printed images of the past transports the viewer to another time and place. And as you piece it together, you do begin to wonder: Might one actually encounter these sea plants today, or is this a glimpse into a lost age from the ocean's vast, mysterious history?
