Are we there yet? Piece together rare & colourful travel illustrations.

Although a staycation may be in the cards for many of us, it doesn’t mean that we can’t be transported to beautiful spaces and places! Enjoy images from these travel publications-turned-digital jigsaw puzzles from McGill Rare Books & Special Collections’ Art Deco & the Decorative Arts in the 1920s and 30s digital exhibition.

Click on the original digitized image to work on the puzzle from the Jigsaw Explorer website or solve them one piece at a time on our blog. Choose the number of puzzle pieces you want to work with, and then drag and drop them into place to make these illustrations come alive. Happy travels!
