Your jigsaw will arrive in an attractive presentation box, which, for that added personal touch, contains an area on the box lid allowing you to write your own message to the recipient.

Please Note:

Any date prior to 28th September 1952 had a front cover that featured a list of classified adverts (i.e. old-fashioned births, deaths and marriages etc.) and not the common news format we see today. However, you will receive a jigsaw with an internal main news page instead. For The Observer, the last front page edition with just ads on the cover was the 25th October 1942.

To help complete each puzzle, a full-size guide image of the front cover is included.

If your date lands on a Sunday, you will be presented with The Observer Newspaper rather than the Guardian.

The Guardian:
February 1920
12th October – 31st October 1952.
