Jigsaw Art Puzzles
The first jigsaw puzzle was made by a mapmaker in London circa 1765. He mounted maps to wood and cut the countries into "pieces" using a fine saw. These puzzles taught children in England about geography. Adults, including Queen Victoria, saw the puzzles as entertainment.
Jigsaw puzzles evolved into a more economical hobby in the 1800's when puzzle makers started mounting images to cardboard.
