"The Ultimate Alphabet" by Mike Wilks first published 1986 - which is the year I bought my copy.
In need of something recently to take my mind off everyday stuff, I rediscovered this buried in a cupboard. I see that I managed to complete some of it but not all ( not bad in 30 years dipping in and out ). I am pretty sure that a check list was originally included but that has gone missing.
I wondered if any of you "Ultimate Puzzlers" have ever attempted this and, if so, whether you have managed to complete it ?
Just from an artistic point of view, the images are quite fantastic and worth looking at for themselves but spotting the words conveyed in each illustration is the problem.........the X image is relatively ( ) easy with just 30 items but the S image can contain as many as 1,229. Conveyed in a A4 size image, that is certainly saying something.
Not wishing to take over LB,s Puzzle thread I could start another one just for this if there are any takers ? This seemed to be the best place to enquire initially.
Can't offer shop bought sweeties but home made Chocs can be dished out to Winners ...........oh, go on then......for losers too
