In Britain, artist Stephen Walter is known for his obsessively detailed social maps, identifying places by their characteristics, local population, and history—at times with a rather caustic wit. Here he adapts one of his maps from The Island: London Series into a puzzle, but this is no ordinary jigsaw. For one thing, the pieces all look quite similar, though they are very different sizes and shapes, following the neighborhoods in the original black and white drawing. For another, the labels may refer to names only the locals use, and the puzzle itself is huge—about 31 32 inches when finished. Putting it together is less like doing a jigsaw than it is embarking on an interactive work of art.
