Ravensburger's 32,000 piece jigsaw!

Ravensburger Australia are about to release the worlds largest jigsaw 32,000 pieces -called Double Retrospect artwork by Kieth Haring. Educa held the record for the largest commercially available jigsaw puzzle with Life 24000 pieces. But now Ravensburger strikes back! I don't think the image of 32 blocks of symbols has quite the same apppeal to me as the Royce McClure artwork in 'Life', but then if you are a puzzler, and you're up for the challenge... The finished size is 544 x 172 cms! Watch this utube video of its production - fascinating! Or click here to see another video of it.
Leave a comment to tell us what you think of the new puzzle.
