Free Crossword …. and Judith Dupré’s Book Party at One World Trade Center

2016 has been a year of new beginnings for me. New friends, new opportunities, new challenges.

Recently we were honored to create a custom crossword for Judith Dupré’s groundbreaking biography of One World Trade Center!  The puzzle was offered to 350+ guests of the April 26 book party at One World Trade Center.

How magical it was to celebrate this beautiful skyscraper (the tallest in the Western Hemisphere) — while enjoying the grand vistas from the building itself!

You can download and print the puzzle here, on the book’s website.  Your choice of color or black-and-white. There’s artwork involved — we recommend solving with pen or ink.

Congratulations on this magnificent achievement, Judith!


Guests gathered high atop the OWTC to celebrate Judith’s new book.


The guest of honor — brilliant and beautiful Judith Dupré


A special puzzle for a magical night atop One World Trade Center.


The other guest of honor –One World Trade Center.


Guests took a shot at solving the puzzle.  Judith provided three essential puzzle-solving tools —  food, champagne and pencils!

Orts is Patrick Merrell’s New Website

CrosswordNation_ortsHi all!  Patrick Merrell — our friend, crossword constructor, artist and author of Zep — has a shiny-new website. Aptly named ORTS, the new site is (in Patrick’s words) “an original collection of never-used, new, and repurposed stuff from my 37 years as a freelance artist, graphic designer, writer, and puzzlemaker.”

I love the upbeat format because Patrick’s unique humor shines through on every page. On February 12 he teased us with this juicy morsel:  “What do you call someone who reknits a pair of socks?”

Head out to ORTS to find the answer!
