The World of James Joyce And Other Irish Writers: A 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle

Dive into the world of James Joyce in this jigsaw puzzle featuring a day in the life of Ireland’s Ulysses, Leopold Bloom.

Travel back to 16 June 1904, the day on which Ulysses is set, and join Stephen Dedalus and Buck Mulligan in their Martello tower, Blazes Boylan jingling along in his carriage, Molly Bloom in her chamber and a host of other iconic Dubliners as they go about their day. Whether you’ve got a well-thumbed copy of Finnegans Wake or you’ve never read a word of Joyce, you’ll delight in following Leopold Bloom on his odyssey through ‘dear dirty Dublin’. There’s never been an easier way to piece together a story!

This 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle is the perfect gift for fans of James Joyce, Ulysses and Irish literature. Michael Kirkham’s detailed illustration of Joyce’s Dublin is packed with real people and fictional characters to seek and find. In the accompanying pull-out poster Joyce scholar Professor Joseph Brooker guides you through the people and places depicted and gives a quick run-down of all the action in Ulysses. Your own puzzle odyssey starts here!
