Puzzle Cards

There’s some sort of juvenile fun that accompanies finding and playing with such cards. Here I’m showing two kinds.

The first example involves turning discs to re-arrange people’s faces.

How many faces...

The second example is a jigsaw puzzle type.

I have occasionally seen blank jigsaw puzzle postcards available in stores. The pieces can be coloured with markers. Drawing or paintings can also be applied to them.


This view of Banff, Alberta shows Cascade Mountain in the background. It was sold as a souvenir and was found alongside the postcards in a local shop.

Notice how the image on the envelope doesn’t quite match the one on the card.

It is shown having many more puzzle pieces. The overlay of white lines suggests doesn’t replicate the outline of the pieces on the actuals postcard.
