Large text crossword book (large print, large font or however you want to call it). This book has 76 puzzles with clues and grid on one page and the answer at the end of the book. The paper is slightly grey, a bit like recycled paper, so helpful if you find black text on white hard to see. As far as I can tell it’s UK English. The clues are mostly simple, rather than cryptic.
The title of the book is ‘Super Large Print Crossword’, but I don’t think the print is any larger than the other large text puzzle books I have in stock. Also, inexplicably, there are a few puzzles that are not large print at all.
This book is actually a series. I have books 37-40 available so if you would like a particular one then please let me know. Otherwise one will be picked at random.
We also have some other large print crossword puzzle books –
Plus some other large print puzzle book too (word search and criss cross).
I’ve done a very quick comparison of the type size compared to a couple of magazine crossword puzzles I’ve found. Some photos are included. I printed the alphabet in different point sizes of Arial to guess at the point size of the puzzle book. I also measured the puzzle grid.
- Gardeners’ World magazine crossword – text 8pt, grid 8.3 cm by 8.3cm
- Which? magazine crossword – text 7pt, grid 7.3cm by 7.3cm
- This puzzle book large crossword – text 13pt, grid 12.6cm by 12.8cm
- This puzzle book small crossword – text 10pt, grid 8.4cm by 9.4cm
So this puzzle book has got larger print and larger grids (even the smaller puzzles).
