Crossiversary week continues with another themeless mini-puzzle. I hope I continue to be your number one source of non-square crosswords!
So Ben Tausig, the gent behind the American Values Club crossword, has a new book out celebrating 100 years of crosswords. The Curious History of the Crossword: 100 Puzzles from Then and Now is just that: tales from the past century of an evolving art form. (That’s right: I think that puzzles are an art form.) Not only a collection of essays on the changes in technology, humor, the so-called Breakfast Table Test and other topics, this book contains 100 puzzles from throughout the years for any solver to enjoy.
You can order The Curious History of the Crossword from Amazon (among other websites), or pick it up locally wherever fine puzzle books are sold.
