With bracing clarity, James Elkins explores why images are taken to be more intricate and hard to describe in the twentieth century than they had been in any previous century. Why Are Our Pictures Puzzles? uses three models to understand the kinds of complex meaning that pictures are thought to possess: the affinity between the meanings of paintings and jigsaw-puzzles; the contemporary interest in ambiguity and 'levels of meaning'; and the penchant many have to interpret pictures by finding images hidden within them. Elkins explores a wide variety of examples, from the figures hidden in Renaissance paintings to Salvador Dali's paranoiac meditations on Millet's Angelus, from Persian miniature paintings to jigsaw-puzzles. He also examines some of the most vexed works in history, including Watteau's "meaningless" paintings, Michelangelo's Sistine Ceiling, and Leonardo's Last Supper.

When LIFE's editors looked back on our long history of picture puzzle (LIFE invented the craze a few years ago — and other publishers followed), we realized it's "absolute madness" that we're on our 16th book in the series. And so we thought — what better title for our newest puzzle book? As always, LIFE's editors choose the most colorful and lively pictures and this time — with a title like Madness — readers will be sure to see the craziest, most vivid photos we've ever selected. This activity book is set up so that there are terrific, enjoyable tests for every level of player, from the kids who are tackling their first-ever puzzle to the old masters who have met every challenge in our first ten books. We know what our loyal book-buyers want from us, and we again deliver in this sixteenth book in the Picture Puzzle series.
