Mount Everest: A Jigsaw Puzzle

Mount Everest: A jigsaw puzzle, 20"×29", 1000 pieces. Heian International Inc. $7.95.

Just ideal for the jaded armchair mountaineer, this magnificent panorama of the South Face with neighboring Lhotse dappled in alpenglow is from a photo by Shiro Shirahata. It is hard to assemble, but rewarding. Not only does it give one a feeling kindred to route finding—at no cost in calories—but can bring one to a very precious, intimate feeling for the mountain.
