Imaginatorium Shop, version 2

Welcome to the new Imaginatorium site at There is no "total reorganisation", so you should be able to find things easily, and eventually any bookmarks to the old shop will be redirected to the right page. The new checkout is working, which means that in simple cases you will be able to complete a purchase in the normal way.

Covid-19: Shop status

There are still many problems in the postal system, varying hugely from one country to another. More details on the front page, and at the checkout there will be more specific information about the destination country (sorry: not implemented for all countries yet!).

New puzzles!

Blog entry for June 2009

Big pile of new Epoch titles arrived last week, so I'm trying to get cracking on the ones still waiting in the queue.

I updated the Shu fantasy art page, or rather pages now, since I've split off the smaller (300/500) puzzles. We sell overwhelmingly more puzzles in the 1000+ piece range, but we do also get customers who are just looking for smaller puzzles. So increasingly I'm aiming to get the complete manufacturer range on display. (One of the backroom things I've been busy on recently is our system for updating from the manufacturer online catalogs, at least where this is possible.)

Then next in line is a whole page of "military history" - paintings of famous battle incidents, including Suwahara's portrayal of the battle of red cliffs, subject of new Chinese blockbuster. Japanese history is entwined with that of China, just as English and French history are, and as always easily-romanticised incident get picked out from wherever they happened.

Then the fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano makes a comeback with two new puzzles from Appleone, and we'll also have a new page featuring trains and the romance of steam. And more...
