BURLINGTON — The Logic Puzzle Museum, 533 Milwaukee Ave., will host a “Antique & Vintage Rebus Puzzle” exhibit from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays, Feb. 15-March 8.
Rebus puzzles, phrases and stories written with letters, words and pictures combined, have been around for hundreds of years. A private collection of rebuses from the 1800s to modern day is on exhibit. Humor and puns are common elements in a rebus, but some have serious messages. To read it, one must first solve the puzzle. The display includes a 1914 postcard titled “A Farmer’s Love Letter” picturing 11 different vegetables in the message, and another fancy antique postcard with just four words and two images for the message.
Antique rebus holiday cards, vintage Valentine rebus cards, Victorian dating cards, post cards from 1905, Sam Loyd Rebus Puzzles and contemporary rebus puzzles will be displayed.
Tickets cost $8 and are available by calling (262) 763-3946 (Feb. 22 is sold out).
