Find David Bowie in this interactive jigsaw puzzle, set in 70s Berlin - a city divided and in crisis, and one that Bowie called his home.
Where’s Bowie? is both a fun 500-piece detail-focused jigsaw puzzle, and a ’Find Bowie’ activity too. Hidden in multiple places on the puzzle, Bowie - in his various chameleonic guises - is patiently waiting to be spotted by a well-trained eye as the puzzle reveals itself.
Music aficionados and Bowie nerds alike will explain that the “Berlin Trilogy” of the albums Low, Heroes, and Lodger, are some of the best he ever recorded. They are infused with electronic, ambient and world music - thanks in great part to Bowie’s collaboration with Brian Eno throughout this time. It’s a vital chapter in the annals of Bowie, and is explored in this intricate jigsaw.
Smith Street Gift’s first Where’s Bowie? jigsaw puzzle was an immediate bestseller on its release in March 2020!
Jigsaws are an exciting new trend in the gift trade - said to promote brain activity, and a cool part of the “digital detox” movement.
Jigsaw puzzles are a great activity for family and friends to enjoy together - but can be equally enjoyable to complete on your own.
After the age of social distancing, people have been captivated once again by the idea of jigsaws.
Kev Gahan’s illustration style is incredibly bold and bright, and while approachable for kids is also laden with clever references for adults and Bowie fans.
David Bowie remains an iconic pop-cultural and perennially popular figure
This jigsaw design is doubly intriguing - as separate from the joy of putting the jigsaw together, there’s a ’find Bowie’ element of fun involved too.
