Jan van Haasterens “The Printing Office” is an extremely comical and detailed 3000 piece jigsaw puzzle which depicts a highly chaotic printing factory, overflowing with disorganised employees and stunned guests. The puzzle image portrays the chaos of employees passing through the huge industrial printer whereas others are queuing up for some BBQ food from the heat of the machine! All of this mayhem is unfolding right behind the boss and managers backs, who are both none the wiser by either getting their picture taken or showing a group of flabbergasted guests this highly disorderedly printing office!
If this little taste of what is included in the puzzle image is to your liking, then this 3,000 piece puzzle will keep you entertained.
What is most noticeable in this hilarious jigsaw puzzle is the extremely high level of detail and use of colours to make this puzzle even better.
