Enter If You Can – The Art Of Puzzle Boxes
By Peter Hajek
The book measures: 285 mm x 220 mm x 15 mm
Peter Hajek wrote about it:
“The richly illustrated hardback book covers the history of boxes with secret opening; their flourishing at the turn of the 19th and 20th Century in England, Japan and Switzerland; the work of the three pioneers of puzzle box art – Wood, Chambers and Kamei; and the greatest achievements of modern masters currently active in Japan, America, Europe and Australia. There are also sections on puzzle box secrets, puzzle locks, and the current 'puzzle scene'.”
Two important notes:
1. The book will be also available from cubicdissection.com in the USA, probably from 13th September. Buyers from the US will save on postage by buying the book there, those from the rest of the world will save on postage by buying the book here.
2. An edition locked with a trick lock by Shane Hales will be available from this site only, probably in late September. The estimated cost is EUR114 ($136) plus postage. This note is issued so that collectors wanting the locked version do not unnecessarily buy the standard copy.
Altogether, 700 standard copies and 300 locked copies were printed. If the current edition sells out, a second updated edition will be issued.
