Jan van Haasteren's 'The Escape' is a fantastic brightly coloured 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle with plenty to look out for in the highly detailed puzzle image. If you look carefully at the puzzle image you will get a taste for Jan's level of humour that depicts a chaotic city centre that has been brought to a stand-still as the local police continue their search for the prison escapees. Can you help the police try and find where the escapees are hiding or trying to make their big break from? Are they in the trees, on the top of the buildings or even right underway the nose of the police officers? If this little taste of what is included in the puzzle image is to your liking, then this 1,000 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.
