In my earlier post about puzzles, I mentioned that I will have four designs of Limited Edition puzzles for sale at tomorrow’s Brew on the Bridge. That’s Oct. 13, 11 – 2, on the Endom Bridge between Monroe and West Monroe.
The third design is another from my “creation photography” collection. The subject is a Gulf Fritillary (Agraulis vanillae) butterfly, and the fact that they are common in Louisiana does not diminish their beauty at all! In this puzzle image, the butterfly is perched on a purple flower with light glowing through is gorgeously marked wings.
The fourth design is the one I want to talk about. The image is called “Home of the Cotton King,” and this single family dwelling–yes, single family dwelling–stands on St. Charles Ave., in the heart of the Garden District, in New Orleans.
Indeed, a cotton magnate of long ago built the home. New Orleans cotton king W.P. Brown and his partners managed to corner the global cotton market in the first years of the 1900s, a maneuver that made Brown one of the wealthiest men in the South. He built this house from 1901 to 1904.
I was somewhat surprised to learn that many people love putting together puzzles of interesting buildings. This puzzle was also first published on the JigsawPlanet website, where almost 200 people put it together.
So, there you have my four LE puzzle designs. Pick up one or two for the puzzlers on your Christmas list: $20@ or take a 10% discount on two or more. Out of town friends, I will get them onto my website asap.
