You’ll Love This 1000 Colours Jigsaw Puzzle When You Finish It… If You Can Finish It


After putting this 1000 Colours jigsaw puzzle together, I will frame it and hang it by the living room wall. It’s just so pretty. Problem is, I have no idea how long this darn thing will take me, because assembling a jigsaw puzzle of the CMYK color spectrum just sounds like a torturous undertaking. Seriously, how the heck do you put something like that together?

I’ve played around with some difficult jigsaw puzzles, but this looks like boss enemy levels of tough. There are no lines, illustrations, or pictures to guide you whatsoever – just colors and a whole lot of them.


We’re not sure if graphic designers with a good grounding in color theory will have an easier time solving this 1000 Colours jigsaw puzzle, but we definitely hope so, because I can’t imagine anyone else who will. How long will it take to finish? Probably longer than this 32,000-piece puzzle plus a few brain cells and maybe an ignored girlfriend, judging from the amount of time similar puzzles that didn’t have pictures took people to figure out.


Oh yeah, the puzzle is made up of 1,000 pieces, with each tile cast in just a single color (no overlaps because that might make it easier). Sure, it’s hard but it could be worse: at least, it’s not a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle with blank tiles in the exact same color. Yes, apparently, that exists.

Designed by Clemens Habicht and co-produced with Lamington Drive Editions, the 1000 Colours retail for AUD $40.

    This would be crazy hard for me too do, but I think it’d be fun to do at least. I can imagine seeing myself get very annoyed trying to figure out what pieces go together, but it should be fun once I were to finish it.

    This is totally cool. Do you know who this would be a perfect gift for? My nephew that is into graphic design, he would appreciate all the colors.

    I bought, and finished one of these. I know it sounds strange, but this was the easiest 1000pc jigsaw I’ve ever done. Why? The location of every piece is built in. This piece is more greeny-blue than this one, and not as dark…I move it up and to the left. Once I had a strange epiphany about how I was assembling a cylinder of graduated colour, with light at the top and dark at the bottoms- easy. I blazed through. The pinks were hard for some reason though. Might be to do with the printing. So buy it, because I’ve never felt even vaguely inclined to frame a puzzle before but this one is going up soon. The colours are wonderful and the quality is great.
