Hello everyone! I trust everyone had a nice Father’s Day filled with love and puzzles! 😊

This week, Quebec will celebrate its National holiday. In going with the theme of this holiday, I wanted to highlight two puzzle brands that are based right here in Quebec, as well as some other puzzles that are in spirit of the province.

I believe a lot of you are familiar with Eurographics. Their head office is in Montreal, and they have been a strong player in the puzzle market since 1897, also producing art and posters around the world. I quite enjoy their fine art puzzles. I just finished this beautiful puzzle, Harmony, and I have quite a few of their puzzles in my to-do pile.

Here is a link to the many Eurographics options that are available from Jigsaw Jungle. I have never seen a larger selection of Eurographics in all my puzzle shopping experience. There is something for everyone in this line.

The next brand to highlight is JaCaRou Puzzles. Anie Maltais created JaCaRou out of her love of jigsaws and creates and designs many of the images. They are based here in the west of Montreal and are quickly gaining popularity. The images are very unique, brightly colored, and have interesting texture in their designs. I have a couple of the images on my wish list and Anie’s Nutcracker puzzle waiting in my pile for the holiday season. If you love color, then you will love these!

For more Quebec flavor, Pauline Paquin is a very popular artist from Quebec whose puzzles are quite recognizable. Her art is featured in several brands including Ravensburger and Trefl.

Here are a few of her images:

Other Quebec puzzle artists include: Kim Veilleux, Christine Genest, and Carole Spandau.

Lastly, here are a couple of other Quebec themed puzzles that I like:
