Jigsaw Puzzles

The question arises - is assembling jigsaw puzzles a hobby or a craft?   We leave aside the question, seriously addressed in Europe recently, as to whether or not assembling jigsaw puzzles is a sport - there's enough pressure in this world without being timed as to how quickly one can assemble a puzzle, thank you!  

We only know that we love doing jigsaw puzzles, and that they've been a great source of entertainment for us.  Herewith, some of our favorite types of jigsaw puzzles (click on the highlighted text for more information on these, all available online):
