Mike Wilks (British, b. 1947)
The Ultimate Noah’s Ark, 1990–1992
From The Ultimate Noah’s Ark, by Mike Wilks (London: Michael Joseph, 1993)

Two by two, over seven hundred quirky creatures crowd this eye-twisting, brain-teasing painting by artist and author Mike Wilks. In his book The Ultimate Noah’s Ark, Wilks challenges sharp-eyed viewers to find “a vociferous insect and a bird with a loud voice,” “a mammal with a nose for luck,” “a talkative antipodean,” and a single creature “alone and without a mate.” Might the mateless, mystery creature be clad in a gray business suit and playing a musical instrument? The search begins…

Known for works of intense complexity, Wilks takes readers to an entertaining and informative carnival of discovery. He invested more than 6,500 hours in researching and creating The Ultimate Noah’s Ark, with zoological information verified by London’s Natural History Museum.

Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, our 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzles combine superb color reproduction, stunning and unusual images, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzleworkers.

About: Mike Wilks

The art of Mike Wilks (British, b. 1947) is characterized by intensely realistic (sometimes surrealistic) detail—think art appreciation and a game of discovery, all in one. Wilks began his artistic career at 13 when he won a scholarship to art school. He ran a successful graphic design business for five years before he sold it and began writing and illustrating books in 1975. He rocketed to fame following publication of The Ultimate Alphabet in 1986; the puzzle book was a global bestseller. Each image contains dozens, if not hundreds, of items, all beginning with the same letter of the alphabet. After eight illustrated books, he established himself as a novelist with The Mirrorscape Trilogy, a fantasy adventure series. Wilks, who was the subject of an award-winning British documentary, lives in London. His drawings and paintings now reside in museums, galleries, and private collections around the world.
