Artist: Jan van Haasteren

Have you ever challenged yourself with a jigsaw puzzle drawn by Jan van Haasteren?  The Dutch cartoonist's humorous images are easily recognizable for being especially crowded and detailed.  Jan's drawings have appeared as jigsaw puzzles since 1985 when he started collaborating with Jumbo, the game company headquartered in his native Holland.  Some of the puzzles are extra difficult because they're sold in piece counts of 1500, 2000 and even 3000 pieces!

Bits and Pieces offers a number of Jan van Haasteren puzzles, including The Farm, a 1500 Piece Large Format Jigsaw Puzzle:

Measures 23½" x 35½"

The same jigsaw puzzle is also available in 3000 pieces.

Spilsbury sells Jan van Haasteren puzzles, too.  One of their top sellers is The Zoo, presented in 1000 pieces:

Measures 26¾" x 19¼"
