Useful Photography 12
The magazine’s focus is to explore images created for practical purposes, in this case, the photographs used to guide solvers of jigsaw puzzles in their endeavours. These pictures, from animals, television and sports to postcard-perfect destinations, are printed on cardboard and cut into various pieces of different shapes that must be fitted together to form the whole. Usually found on the puzzle box’s exterior, they are exact duplicates of the completed game – the perfect version of the puzzle, undamaged and without any missing pieces. The sometimes incomplete photos in this issue were collected by Hans Aarsman, Julian Germain, Erik Kessels and Hans van der Meer.
