I'd love this bookshelf!

How I'd love to have this bookshelf at home! The books on each shelf relate to a particular topic - Lady Chatterleys Pullover, Much Ado about knitting, Withering Tights... A fun jigsaw to do, full of detail and humour. The artwork is that of Colin Thompson, who has illustrated some wonderful jigsaws.. He has a great website - take a look here
