Jigsaw puzzles from Japan
© Shinya Uchida
Uchida's travels have taken him almost everywhere - here a sun-kissed corner of an Italian town (no indication of the exact location).
An unceremoniously dumped bag of shopping awaits the return of its owner - perhaps the person with the bicycle? We shall never know, but it provides the perfect counterpoint.
This puzzle has a luxury "Cloth touch" finish.
Uchida was born in 1960 in Kyushu, and after a degree in fine arts from Aichi University of Education, became hooked on lone travelling. From there he was drawn into sketching, getting his first magazine publication in 1988. Since then he has kept travelling the world, and produced a whole series of book publications. Having spent three years in Perth, from 1991 to 1994, he regards Australia as his second home, but has also visited many parts of Europe and America.
Note that he writes his name in the "Western" order; Uchida is his family name.
This puzzle has a luxury "canvas" finish.
