The wonderfully named Ackerman's Repository of Arts and Sciences was a monthly magazine published in the closing years of the 18th century and into the beginning of the 19th. Apart from illustrations of de rigueur Parisian fashions and furniture for the home, there are articles on every aspect of taste and tasteful living. One might say it was the Vogue of its day. Sometimes copies turn up at auction - I love them! See if you can find a copy like this that has snippets of the last fabric designs on the cover. So, a rainy Sunday afternoon - it has to be time for a jigsaw! However, sadly, this is not going to work for Mac users. Instructions: Click here next Click Open, then click the .EXE file name and click Run, when you see the jigsaw puzzle, click Play Too many pieces? Try clicking on Trays on the top tool bar to create any number of resizeable trays to sort your pieces ........ you can also click the Cheat button and watch the puzzle solve itself! The software is by David Gray designer of Jigsaws Galore - the powerful jigsaw player and creator for Windows.
