They are solved by assembling pieces together. The most common, and popular, member of this family is the jigsaw puzzle which was invented in 1760 by an Englishman, John Spilsbury. Most mechanical puzzle collectors do not collect jigsaw puzzles, though some modern handcrafted ones by Stave Puzzles, F. A. Bourke, and a few others are of such high quality, they certainly deserve mention. Stave's, in particular, are often made from original colorful art work designed specifically for one jigsaw puzzle and contain very difficult puzzles within a puzzle.
