This book will celebrate 75 years of the most famous crossword in the world. In 1930, the crossword was not keenly received by The Times and it was owing to reader pressure that the crossword became a daily feature in the paper. With the British love of wordplay, riddles and puns, the crossword soon became an integral part of life in Britain. Included will be a crossword for every year since 1930 including the first ever crossword published in The Times and a specially commissioned 75th anniversary prize crossword. These crosswords will be taken from prominent days in history and will show the development of the crossword over the years. There will be specially commissioned articles from former editors, who are often compilers themselves, recounting their experience of the crossword.
