What is a mechanical puzzle? What is a twisty puzzle?
The book visually features over 6,000 mechanical puzzles from the collections of over 100 collectors and shops from around the world and up to date with puzzles released through January 1st, 2017! The focus of the book is to provide a comprehensive visual guide to all mass produced twisty puzzles. To a lesser extent, we also survey some of the most iconic & historically significant mass produced releases among all other categories of puzzles including: assembly, disassembly, interlocking, tanglement, sliding, dexterity, route-finding, jigsaw, edge matching, folding, electronic/electro-mechanical and more!
