Peter Aschwanden: The Exploded Beetle 1000-Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

$22.95

Enter the garage and freewheeling mind of Peter Aschwanden. But step lightly lest you disturb the ongoing maintenance. In the mid-1960s, illustrator Aschwanden created something unique and bewildering: every bolt, nut, clamp, gasket, and piston of a ’60s Volkswagen Beetle removed from its carapace and carefully set aside— well, nearly every piece. There are only three tires in the frame, some parts are from different years, and so far no one has found the keys, but give credit where it is due. This legendary counter-culture artist knew the interior workings of a VW Bug by heart. So much so that The Exploded Beetle appeared in the book How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive: A Manual of Step-by-Step Procedures for the Compleat Idiot, first published in 1969. Get to know one of the world’s most recognizable cars like never before when you assemble this 1000-piece puzzle.

Fun Time

I am a woman who does not know anything about car parts and the puzzle was different from the usual art work or scenery. It was challenging and fun but not too difficult and I completed it in 4 days. Great choice!

A Wonderful and Fun Puzzle

I love the Peter Aschwanden puzzle. It’s difficult because there are so many pieces, but great fun. I’ve always loved his Exploded Beetle drawing. Now that it’s in color it’s even better. I bought several to give as gifts to friends.
