It's a bit of a puzzle

Posted in News on 25 Mar 2021

We have started turning some images from our collections into online jigsaws using the Jigsaw Explorer website.

It works by turning images that we have online into jigsaw puzzles.

You can even use their website to create your own jigsaws if you're interested!

We'll be adding more images as time goes on, so do check back here to see what's new.

We hope that you enjoy making our images come together through these puzzles.
