Busy Bee Instant Picture Pack No.5: Picture Puzzle Stories


We don't have a complete, unused copy of this set. If you have one, please get in touch.

What we do have is in some ways even better: Patrick Tilley's original artwork tests (& more recently, a used copy we've been able to patch up).

Patrick Tilley:

"So here it is — drawn by yours truly. The three scans were part of the contents — the fourth panel went AWOL."

So, having just acquired a badly used copy of this set, I've been able to clean it up & am now able to show you what a completed version in perfect condition would have looked like. Apart from seven of the forty-one transfers, all on page four, which you'll have to accept in their mangled state.

(N.B.: the cover says "42 puzzle pictures to rub down", but I've counted them very carefully & there are only forty-one!)

By way of an addendum, I've been asked to show how I clean up these sets. So here's a very brief demonstration; firstly, a panel in its original messy state:

Next, after removing the blemishes:

And finally, with the transfers put back:
