I'm Alison Mary, from Oldham in the north west of England.
This account has been set up specially to create small (30-40 piece) versions of the medium (80 - 100 piece) and large (200-240 piece) jigsaws published on my original account (almaaurea). I'm a huge fan of beautiful fairy art and vintage children's illustrators and my puzzles all reflect this... :)
Project 2 now complete: I've made a collection of jigsaws using the pictures and poems from Marion St John Webb's delightful Fairy books, illustrated by Margaret Tarrant. These were published between 1923 and 1928 and comprised 12 volumes - Flower, Forest, House, Heath, Seed, Insect, Pond (Water), Seashore, Wild Fruit, Weather, Twilight and Orchard Fairies. Each volume contains 6 themed poems, 6 colour plates and a number of black and white illustrations. Each of the colour plates has been turned into 'small' jigsaws and 'medium' and 'large' jigsaws on my other account (almaaurea). All are accompanied by the corresponding poem, either in full or in extract-form in the case of the longer poems!
Project 1 now complete! I've created a collection of jigsaws using the 168 illustrations and poems from Cicely Mary Barker's beautiful Flower Fairy books. For more information about these books and puzzles in both 'large' (200-240 piece) and 'medium' (80-100 piece) sizes, please see my main account (almaaurea). This account has been set up specially to create 'small' (30-40 piece)versions of the puzzles. All 168 jigsaws in the collection are accompanied by the original poems.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! :)
