Masterpieces Book Puzzles

I'm now officially in love with Masterpieces Book Puzzles. While browsing for a craft project in the kid aisle at Walmart, I stumbled upon these amazingly beautiful puzzles - shaped like old looking books with artwork for the fairy tale on the cover. They didn't have Alice in Wonderland, or I would have bought that one instead, and it was a tough toss up, but I finally decided to get mine as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

Looking online they are listed around $20.00, but when in store I picked Snow White up for $10.00.

It's a 1,000 piece puzzle and I have to tell you, extremely challenging and  large. I haven't done puzzles for years and only get to work on them every so often, so it still is gracing my kitchen table:

It's made more difficult by the fact that there are SO many browns in the puzzle, so it's not easy to separate the pieces into category. Point is, it's money well spent for the book and also the challenge. The Snow White one isn't one that will go up easily. It barely fits on my table.

 Here is the stunning book. The art is also on the spine. Beautiful right? Also nice, thick, and sturdy.

Inside the book is the full picture of the puzzle. Unfortunately if you need a good guide for a puzzle, this one doesn't give much effort. It's a smallish picture, and you'd need the "book" propped open to keep seeing the full picture.

The others in the series are calling my name. I was especially impressed by the artwork for the Alice in Wonderland and Jack and the Beanstalk.

They have several other designs. Here are three more I'm eyeing (click each to see a bigger picture)
