My un-lockdown project was cycling in the countryside.  Today I completed 1000 miles of local cycling, taking in pretty views of Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire countryside.

Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle
There is a jigsaw available of  the 'Objects in the Ashmolean' book cover; here it is in the Ashmolean Museum shop along with the book.  (it's also in Blackwell's - image below).
The jigsaw - made by Wentworth - has unusual shaped pieces and whimsy cut-outs which, in this particular jigsaw, relate to museum objects.  The edges are not what you'd expect either.  It really is a fun and interesting way to piece art and history together!
Ashmolean are currently running a promotion on the book and jigsaw, while stock lasts.
