    FUN FACT #1! Did you know that puzzles with words are easier than just just images? So don;t be intimidated by this 1000 piece beauty. A fun challenge, this puzzle features iconic books from across the literary canon and a mix of genres (poetry, memoir, fiction and nonfiction).

     

    The artist, Richard Baker, paints paperback editions from the 1960s and ‘70s, faithfully portraying not only the original front cover details, but also signs of its passage through time – creases, worn bindings, and all.

     

    FUN FACT #2! I own a Richard Baker book painting but it's not in this puzzle. 

     

    Cambridge, Massachusetts based representational painter Richard Baker pushes trompe l’œil to new levels as he explores the extent to which the eye can be fooled. From keenly-observed book covers, tulips and toys, to candy and cocktails, Baker’s still lifes captivate the viewer by playfully upending traditional perspective.

    Richard Baker was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1959.  He studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore followed by the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. He has exhibited widely throughout the United States and has been the recipient of several prestigious awards and grants including the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, the New England Foundation for the Arts Grant and the New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship.
