In the 1760s, a London mapmaker John Spilsbury pasted a map onto a thin piece of wood, and cut it up with a scroll saw. England would be one piece, Germany would be another.
He marketed these to very affluent and influential people as a tool to teach their children geography.
Puzzles started expanding beyond learning, with puzzles showing nursery rhymes, fairytale subjects, ships, and trains.
In the early twentieth century, gaming company Parker Brothers invented interlocking pieces, each one cut by hand.
During the Great Depression, jigsaw puzzles became highly popular as entertainment and employment.
With so many people without work, they would buy a scroll saw and a jigsaw, make jigsaw puzzles in their kitchen or basement, and sell them to their neighbors, or rent them out.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
