>For all of you who, like me, once tried to fathom the secrets of a book called Masquerade by Kit Williams, check out this story on the Guardian website. Masquerade contained elaborate picture puzzles with a trail of clues leading to buried treasure. Apparently, Kit’s finally been reunited with the golden hare that captured the world’s imagination thirty years ago.
For trivia fans, a few years ago I had the pleasure of working with an extraordinarily talented artist called Steve Pearce, who was the winner of Kit’s second book-based competition. This time the challenge was not only to find out what the title of the book was (the cover had a blank space where the title should have been), but to represent it in as creative a way as possible. Steve built a beautiful mechanical contraption to do just that and walked away with the prize. There’s a picture of it here.
