Whether you’re talking about books focused on Ferrari, food infographics or something a little more racy, it’s likely like the subject matter has found its way inside a Taschen coffee table book. The latest release is filled with as much detailed information as you’d expect to find in one of the publisher’s other books, but this time around it’s presented in a more unusual manner. The appropriately titled Build Your Own Human Skeleton allows you to do exactly what the name suggests—build your own human skeleton. We’re not talking about a simple pop-up book with a few bits and pieces that resemble body parts. We’re talking a three-dimensional, life-size model of a 5’9″ skeleton with anatomical labels in English and Latin. Even better, the pieces are pre-cut with indentations for the folds, so there’s no need for scissors or glue. Whether you’re fourteen or forty, you’re bound to have fun with this one.

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
