The first of these four issues appeared chronologically in the Cryptogram series. The puzzles within were designed to match the harsh brutality facing our protagonists at these points in the story. Responsible for many reported hours of head scratching from Cryptogram readers, these four issues - 1.1 The Library, 1.2 The Cabin, 1.12 The Graveyard and 2.3 Otto & The Old Friend - are by far the most evil and abstract currently in print. So much so that, unlike the other curated sets, anyone who submits correct answers to these issues will be awarded a prize. Recommended for seasoned Cryptogram readers and hardcore puzzle aficionados.

Please note: the photographs used in this listing are not specific to this set. For more information on each of the issues, please see their individual listings in the "Single Issues" section.

Cryptogram Puzzle Post is a monthly illustrated puzzle story inspired by witchcraft and alchemy. Each issue consists of an envelope, containing a series of pages that form a stand-alone chapter in the ongoing story of Anna; a young witch exploring the mysteries of a world not unlike our own. You begin by reading the first page, studying the illustration and puzzling to find the right shard of information that will help you progress towards your final answer. To try it for yourself, visit the ‘Freebies’ section of the website to download the first three issues.

This project is an entirely self-published experiment in art, gaming and storytelling; created by artist Jack Fallows, printed by local workers co-op Footprint (Leeds, UK) and lovingly assembled by hand. The envelopes are roughly A5-size and full-colour laser printed, and the interior pages are all two-colour risograph prints.
