Today we bring you an extra special new puzzle drop: 10 new Art & Fable Puzzles! They are one of our favorite brands to stock for our members because of their puzzle’s unique velvet-touch texture that also reduces glare and the wide variety of puzzle art they have to choose from.
Since adding the mother-daughter co-founded brand to our catalog about a year ago, it has become a Completing the Puzzle member-favorite! We’ve been so excited to tell you all about these new puzzles we’re adding to our catalog and the time is finally here!
Get ready to be mesmerized by all the beautiful images you’re about to see, enjoy your new puzzles!
Tale of Two is one of the three new 500-piece Art & Fable Puzzles we have for you today! It features a whimsical dreamscape from Maria Brzozowska. Art & Fable Puzzle Company does an amazing job at choosing unique artists that create work, unlike anything I’ve seen before, and I am fascinated by this piece of art. I love how each person is portrayed in a way that seems to show their individual personalities, which definitely makes for an exciting puzzling experience as you work your way through it.
The longer I look at this puzzle art, the more I think the people are going to come to life and begin moving around the puzzle. That proves just how powerful this artist works to invoke the imagination of the people who enjoy her work.
Another new 500-piece puzzle you can expect to see in the Completing the Puzzle catalog today is Tailor, with artwork by Boris Shapiro. I don’t know about you but I love reading the artist biographies that Art & Fable provides on their website. Shapiro’s work is inspired by his childhood growing up in Ukraine—previously a state part of the former Soviet Union. Life in the Soviet Union was not easy, and many people had to suppress their desires to express themselves artistically. Shapiro emigrated to Israel and attended art school, where he was able to develop the style you see in Tailor.
This puzzle is an interesting mix of humor and fantasy, with an almost psychedelic feel to it from the curved background you see beneath the man riding his sewing machine-unicycle-flying-desk contraption. If you like intricate details and artwork that you can’t stop looking at because there are so many things to think about, then this puzzle is perfect for you.
Wow. The painting used for this puzzle is one of the most beautiful works of art I have ever seen. Scott Burdick is the artist behind this awe-inspiring work. It’s titled From the Blood of My Ancestors and at 1000 pieces, it is likely to be one of the more challenging puzzles on our new puzzle round-up today. If your favorite puzzle theme is fine arts, then you’ll love this puzzle, too. The background reminds me a bit of Van Gogh’s Irises, but Burdick’s background is used as a tool to highlight the subject in the center of the image, rather than to be the subject of the artwork itself. I think a lot of you will love this puzzle as much as I do, so make sure you add it to your wishlist. I predict it will become a CTP favorite over the next few weeks!
While we’d love to talk about each and every one of the 10 new Art & Fable puzzles we are welcoming to the catalog today, we decided to narrow it down to our top five favorites! After looking through each one carefully, I think if you’re drawn to the puzzle, From the Blood of My Ancestors, and its beautiful floral realist style, you will love the 1000-piece puzzle, Window Nook. It too has an abundance of floral arrangements in the most amazing detail using vibrant colors!
I’ve been so excited to have the 1000-piece puzzle, Game Night, by Bart Slyp and Elvira Errico, be part of the Completing the Puzzle catalog! It’s from Art & Fable’s newest puzzle collection. Where do I start with Game Night?! This puzzle has everything! It’s like a giant puzzle game of iSpy! It can look like a lot to take in at first, but once you’re puzzling it up close, I bet it will be so fun to watch each group’s game table come together into one fantastic meta-puzzle scene of people playing games while being within a puzzle—which is also a game. I want to add this puzzle to my personal puzzle collection, but if you’re not ready to commit to it completely, just add it to your wishlist and you’ll get to try it out with your membership! Maybe you could complete this puzzle of a game night while participating in a game night, that would be pretty cool!
As promised I have a recommendation for another new puzzle to add to your wishlist this week if you love this style. Land of Rutopia, another 1000-piece puzzle, will be up your alley if you enjoy Game Night. Land of Rutopia features art from Ruben Topia (I love the use of his name in the title of the artwork). They both have that hodgepodge mix of dozens of different elements that are sure to keep you busy looking for all the tiny details you can spot!
I saved the best new puzzle for last! Legend of the Jaguar Shaman is 1000 pieces, featuring artwork from Nathan Miller—an artist who was heavily inspired by his time spent in Costa Rica studying nature and wildlife. His attention to detail must be applauded because this jaguar looks so natural. The talent required to make a beautiful painting like this must take hours of patience and devotion to his craft.
According to Art & Fable, jaguars are noble animals in various Latin American countries. It’s clear that Miller respects this creature and its importance to different cultures. I love the symmetry in this puzzle art and if you like wildlife/animal-themed puzzles, then you’ll definitely love this one. Add it to your wishlist as soon as you can!
We’re expanding our collection of Art & Fable puzzles with this week’s newest puzzles, but as I was going through the new ones, I noticed some similarities to other, older Art & Fable puzzles we’ve had in the catalog for a little while.
If you’ve completed Microcosmic Garden from us, you’ll love Mantis Mundi. If you like the style of Microcosmic Garden, but want something more challenging, Mantis Mundi will give you that challenge at 1000 pieces. Both puzzles are by artist Robert Steven Connett and I love his ability to turn bugs and other insects into a beautiful piece of art.
If you love the art from Along the River or Awakening, you’ll love The Deep, 500-pieces which is also by artist Mandy Budan. Vibrant colors and rhythmic patterns are definitely what define this artist’s work and we’re sure you’ll love completing this puzzle too.
Finally, if you loved the collage style of That’s the Point, you’ll also like Paramount Reflected by artist Betsy Silverman! She creates complex cityscapes using recycled paper, old images, and text cut-outs. Add it to your wishlist to make sure you get a chance to complete it!
That was a lot of new puzzles to get through! I’ll keep it short so you can get back to puzzling your current rented puzzle, but return it soon and you’ll be able to get one of the new Art & Fable you just read about!
Just to remind you, it’s not always guaranteed you’ll get a puzzle from your wishlist, as we have many more members than copies of a specific puzzle. When it is time to pack your puzzle, one from your wishlist will be chosen first if it is available. However, if no puzzle from your wishlist is available, a puzzle will be chosen using your default level and theme preferences.
However, the more puzzles on your wishlist, the more likely you will be to receive one! And don't forget, we’re always adding more puzzles to the catalog, so stay tuned for our next blog post with even more new puzzles!
At Completing the Puzzle, we have the largest collection of rentable puzzles, so there’s something for every day of the year. Plus, you can also specify your desired difficulty level and build a wish list of the puzzles you want to receive.
