The Times Jumbo Cryptic Crossword Book 2 is a reissue of More Jumbo Crosswords from The Times, originally published in 1990.

The Times Jumbo Crossword was invented in 1970 by Edmund Akenhead, who put together this second compilation of over 30 crosswords, including the Diamond Jubilee puzzle, a monster stretching across two pages, published in January 1990 in celebration of the sixtieth anniversary of The Times Crossword.

Each crossword is based on a 27 by 27 square grid, complete with over 70 fiendish cryptic clues, and solutions which take the form of single words and whole phrases, some of them filling the entire width or height of the grid.
