The bestselling smash-hit puzzle book of 2018 returns in a cryptic and celebratory tour of Great Britain
This October, Trapeze will publish the follow-up to 2018’s biggest-selling gift book, The Ordnance Survey Puzzle Book.
The Ordnance Survey Puzzle Tour of Britain challenges puzzlers to map their way around Britain in 40 of the OS’s best regional maps. It has hundreds of puzzles, mind-boggling brainteasers, navigational tests, word games, code-crackers, anagrams and mathematical conundrums. Anna Valentine acquired world rights from Adam Gauntlett at PFD.
Anna Valentine, Publisher of Trapeze, yesterday said:
"Working with the Ordnance Survey is a privilege and a joy – and as is evident from the phenomenal success of their first puzzle book, it is a heritage brand that holds a special place in the nation’s heart. I’m so excited to be continuing our successful relationship with them with the publication of The Ordnance Survey Puzzle Tour of Britain – a book that offers more brainteasing map-based puzzles, while simultaneously moving the genre on. I can’t wait to see which area of Britain emerges triumphant in this nationwide publishing event!"
Nick Giles, Managing Director of Ordnance Survey Leisure, added:
"We were delighted with the coverage and sales of last year’s book, and it has been a pleasure to work on the follow up. The Trapeze team have been great throughout, from the opening discussion around how to evolve the concept, to the care and attention to detail shown in the latter stages of the project. It’s clear we share the same appetite for iconic publishing that is both clever and inclusive. We can’t wait for customers to get their hands on it!"
With maps covering the eight areas of South-West England, South-East England, the Midlands, East England, North-West England, North-East England, Wales and Scotland, you'll put your knowledge and skills to the test and become a local – as you discover amazing facts about each region's folklore, famous historical events and the perfect day out with the OS's GetOutside Champions. With four levels of difficulty that make this fun for all the family, The Ordnance Survey Puzzle Tour of Britain is also a celebration of the regional diversity, history and landscapes that make Great Britain so great.
The Ordnance Survey Puzzle Tour of Britain will be published by Trapeze in trade paperback on 17 October 2019.
