To celebrate its first anniversary, Zee Productions will release a raft of new music and military puzzles this autumn.
Originally conceived by Zee Productions’ self-proclaimed metal-head Steve Beatty, the Rocksaws label aimed to shake up the traditional puzzles sector by turning classic heavy metal album artwork into puzzles, with seminal artists including Iron Maiden, Metallica, Motorhead and legendary stadium rockers Queen.
Now attention is being turned to the mainstream music genre, with the release of a range of 500- and 1,000-piece puzzles in September and October, featuring official album artwork from late 20th century music icons including David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, The Clash, Nirvana, AC/DC and Pink Floyd.
Highlights include David Bowie’s symbolic studio album, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars, whose cover featured in the Royal Mail’s ‘Classic Album Cover’ postage stamps issued in 2010; one of the most famous album covers and best-selling albums of all time in popular music, Nevermind from Nirvana; and Exile on Main Street, widely viewed as The Rolling Stones’ greatest album.
Military and puzzle enthusiasts can look forward to the release of Bellica on 19th September 2020. This new military history-themed range of 1,000-piece puzzles is designed by the award-winning aviation artist and commercial illustrator Keith Burns and features 10 WW2 combat depictions that will be of interest to any military history fan.
Memorable battles depicted include the Atlantic Convoy Attack by the Luftwaffe Fw 200; the Luftwaffe strafing D-Day beaches in Fw 190 Over Normandy; and the RAF Lancaster and crew’s last mission in Lancaster – When We Are Back.
The aesthetic of this range is further enhanced by sleeve notes that tell puzzlers what the illustration is of, including the conflict, the equipment and the protagonists. This will draw military enthusiasts into the pleasure of puzzling, and puzzle enthusiasts into the world of military history. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
