In ways, it is less surprising that crossword puzzles have been around for a full hundred years than that we got along without them for so long before then. There is something especially satisfying about this harmless activity; perhaps it is because, as Stephen Sondheim says, "you know there is a solution." Whatever the case, Guardian crosswords columnist Alan Connor knows that a fine excuse for celebration is here and he has gifted us with a book that pays homage to both these pencil puzzlers and their master constructors and solvers. An artful tribute to a peerless pastime.
