Mike Wilks (British, b. 1947) The Letter S, 1985 From The Ultimate Alphabet Surely you can see the saluki, but can you spot the shuttlecock, the stein, or the sifaka? Mike Wilks writes, “There is a sketch of a squinch, a selection of shells (not all from the sea), a siamang settled on a seat, a sponge to be studied, and sundry stuff suspended from strings. In all I included 1,234 S’s for you to see.” From the best-selling book The Ultimate Alphabet, The Letter S is one of Wilks’s most challenging and intricate compositions. Can you find all of the S words depicted here in this 1,000-piece puzzle? If not, check out the list and key included inside.

The pieces were well made, fit together nicely and the the color was vivid. What made this puzzle more difficult was the multitude of items. You would think that would give you lots of anchors, but it kind of made it the opposite where the pieces were difficult to place. It was fun to figure it all out. My family enjoyed this challenge and I hope you do to.
My third puzzle and the hardest one so far!! I love it - really challenges your mind.
Quality pieces, not flimsy cardboard. Interesting letter theme and puzzle key. Very enjoyable.
This is Fun, fun, fun!! A joy to put together as the graphic is educational and challenging.... looking forward to more letters of the alphabet. There's even a list of the objects included. I highly recommend.
