Ricordi is an Italian company with two main specialities - fine art jigsaw puzzles and high quality, educational posters. The company has been involved in printing since 1808.
Some of Ricordi's educational posters are featured in the background of major Hollywood movies, including the movie "Invictus" which was directed by Clint Eastwood and starred Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman.
They list over 490 jigsaw puzzles each of which features a famous work of art. Artists include Dali, Matisse, Michelangelo, Romano, Salvador Dali, Monet and Van Gogh. If you like the idea of making a puzzle whose image is a stunning work of art then you need look no further than Ricordi.
Each puzzle is made of strong, recycled board which resists breaking and is environmentally friendly. All puzzles are printed on art paper, ensuring reproduction of the highest quality. In addition, this is one of only a handful of manufacturers who still provide a "Missing Puzzle Piece" service.
The business generously funds the cause of building and improving the educational system in Kenya, "AMREF" - African Medical and Research Foundation.
