The "Times" Jumbo Cryptic Crossword: Bk. 1
"The Times Jumbo Cryptic Crossword Book 1" is a reissue of the "The Times Book of Jumbo Crosswords", originally published in 1985. Initially published just four times a year on bank holidays, since 1997 the jumbo crossword has appeared on a weekly basis. Each crossword is based on a 27 by 27 square grid, complete with over 70 fiendish cryptic clues, and solutions which take the form of single words and whole phrases, some of them filling the entire width or height of the grid. "The Times Jumbo Cryptic Crossword Book 1" is being reissued at the same time as Books 2 and 3, as well as the brand-new "The Times Jumbo Cryptic Crossword Book 4", providing a published record of every jumbo crossword printed in "The Times".
