Sly Fox - Wimberley Puzzle Company Artist Signature Collection Jigsaw Puzzle
The Gray Fox is said not to be so rapid and enduring a runner; as to the rest its ways probably do not differ materially from those of its kinsman. Its haunts are thickets difficult of access and impenetrable to large Beasts of Prey, and rocks abounding in hollows and crevices; it’s hunting-grounds are the surroundings of its abode, from the sea-shore to the farm-yard. Audobon affirms, that though it is much more timid and shy than the Red Fox and is driven to flight not only by the bark of a Dog but even by the crackling of a branch; and although one hears little or nothing of inroads made by it on protected poultry yards or flocks of Sheep, yet the animal is detested and pursued in the south to the same extent as the Red Fox in the north. The latter, he says, may be compared to a sly, bold robber, the former to a sneak-thief. - Brehm’s Life of Animals: A Complete Natural History for Popular Home Instruction and For the Use of Schools
The Wimberley Puzzle Company Artist Signature Series Jigsaw Puzzles are manufactured using the highest quality materials: including extra thick and durable puzzle board backing, premium professional Luster Photography Paper with a beautiful matte finish, and soft-touch finish for long-term protection and durability of your puzzle. And the Artist Signature Series? Each puzzle contains one special piece signed by the original artist.
We strive to use the highest quality materials in manufacturing our puzzles here at the Wimberley Puzzle Company - from the puzzle backing, to the print, and finally to the box we put everything in.
We offer two puzzle backing materials for you to choose from:
1/4" Baltic Birch
Our premium puzzle backing offering is 1/4" thick Baltic Birch imported from Europe. We chose Baltic Birch because of its consistency, quality and sustainability. The plies consist of 100% birch wood - meaning no fillers or unknown softwoods. Birch is an abundant and fast growing species of tree and this sustainability was part of our decision.
Our extrathick puzzleboard is comprised of 100% post-consumer recycled material for sustainability. It measures .08" inches thick, which is approximately twice as thick as a typical puzzle that you'll find at big box stores. Our heavyweight, luster photo paper measures .01" for a finished piece that is .09" thick. With high-quality materials comes extra durability. You'll feel the difference right out of the box.
