What is a Jan van Haasteren search book?

Below is an overview of all search books by Jan van Haasteren. What can you do with these search books? A couple of things:

  1. Of course you can search in these search books!
    Fun for both adults and children. You can then 'just' search for things that you see on a search plate and then the others have to look for them too, for example.
  2. You can search on each search plate for the recurring elements of Jan van Haasteren, the artist of the puzzles.
    You can then search for the elements listed on the back of the search books. The search books state that you can search for:
    - The shark fins
    - The Hands
    – The Snails ('super snail!')
    - The Toothbrushes
    - The Glasses
    - The Black Cats
    - The Cuttlefish
    - The Paper Planes
    If you want to read more about these recurring elements by Jan van Haasteren, read the page' Jan van Haasteren recurring elements'. Because there you will find many more fixed elements that you always find in his puzzles. Because the search book contains almost all puzzles that Jan van Haasteren has made. So you can search for many more things from Jan – more than are listed on the back of the search book!
  3. You can of course use the search books as a poster for a puzzle that you are going to make.
    Some Jan van Haasteren puzzles do not have a poster, or a very small poster. The search book contains images that are at least 1x the size of a poster with a puzzle. Handy! I have included a table below for each search book, in which you can look up your puzzle and then see whether your puzzle is in the search book. Of course you can also buy or trade the puzzles that are in a search book that you have bought.

11. Jan van Haasteren Search book: Olympic Games (Kruidvat)

jan-van-hasten-search-book-olympic-games-good
This search book is called Olympic Games, but mainly contains search plates with sports in it. So don't let the search book name surprise you. So the theme is 'Sports'. Note: Also in this search book, the puzzles of Jan van Haasteren are not fully displayed on the search plate. Sometimes the top and/or bottom edge of the puzzle is more or less missing. These posters in the search book are perhaps less suitable to use while puzzling? Just so you know when you buy the puzzle book. In the video below I tell you exactly which search plates are or are not fully included.

Only the puzzle 'Chalk on Time' has not appeared in 1000 pieces, all the others have. This puzzle is only available in 1500 pieces.

12. Jan van Haasteren Search book: The Oase (Kruidvat – Big Balloon)

Jan-van-Haasteren-search-book-Oase-600-444
There is no single theme to discover in this search book, it is a mix of all kinds of puzzles (search plates) with all kinds of subjects. All very nice puzzles to make, in which many recurring elements of Jan van Haasteren can be found. Nice search book!

Which puzzles (images) are in the search book 'De Oase'?

The search plate / puzzle 'Oasis' has only appeared in 1500 pieces – so it is not listed separately on this website of 1000 piece puzzles. Do you want to see all the 1000 piece puzzles in this search book? View the overview. They are also listed below:

13. Jan van Haasteren Search book: Winter fun (Kruidvat)

jan-van-haasteren-search-book-winter-fun-good
This search book contains all kinds of nice search plates with the theme 'Winter'. Note: only the puzzle 'Winter Games' is not completely in the search book. That is a cut-out, a large part of the entire puzzle is missing. This poster in the search book is certainly not suitable to use while puzzling, because you are missing a very large part of the puzzle! One search plate, namely 'De Stoptrein', is not a puzzle. That is exceptional, because almost all search plates have also appeared as a puzzle.

14. Jan van Haasteren Search Book: Super Large Search Book

jan-van-haasteren-search-book-super-large-search-book-good
This search book contains all kinds of nice search plates, but does not have a specific theme like you have with other search books (for example the theme 'Winter'). Note: Also in this search book, the puzzles of Jan van Haasteren are not fully displayed on the search plate. Sometimes the top and/or bottom edge of the puzzle is more or less missing. These posters in the search book are perhaps less suitable to use while puzzling? Just so you know when you buy the puzzle book. In the video below I tell you exactly which search plates are or are not fully included.

Which puzzles (images) are in the search book 'Super Large Search Book'?

The search plate / puzzle 'Highland Games' has only appeared in 1500 pieces and is therefore not listed separately on this website with puzzles of 1000 pieces. The search plate 'De Stoptrein' is not a puzzle, but only appeared as a search plate. The puzzle 'Wild Water Rafting' did not appear in 1000 pieces, only in 500, 1500 and 3000 pieces.

15. Jan van Haasteren Search book: Many People together (Kruidvat edition – Big Balloon)

jan-van-haasteren-search-book-kruidvat-2-june-2021-good
The special thing about this search book is that it has no name and no number. That is difficult to find on the internet where you can order it and which search book it is. I myself have only given a name to this search book, based on the images in this search book, namely 'Many people together'. If you look at the 8 search plates in the search book, you only see pictures/puzzles with many people coming together. This search book was published in June 2021, at the same time as the next search book 'Factories Search Book'.

The special thing about this search book is that it has no name and no number. That is difficult to find on the internet where you can order it and which search book it is. I have only given a name to this search book, based on the images that are in this search book, namely 'Search Book Factories'. If you look at the 8 search plates in the search book, you only see images/puzzles with factories or departments where something is made or produced or that hard work is being done. This search book was published in June 2021, at the same time as the next search book 'Many People at Each Other'.

17. Jan van Haasteren Search book 'South Pole expedition' or 'December/Winter' (Kruidvat edition – Big Balloon)

This search book by Jan van Haasteren, published by Kruidvat, again has no name and number. So I gave it the name 'Searchbook South Pole Expedition', named after the name of the puzzle (South Pole Expedition) which is printed on the front. The puzzle South Pole Expedition is recognizable by all those penguins that are on the puzzle, and it seems that if you are going to make this puzzle that you count the number of penguins that appear on the puzzle 🙂 However, on Bol.com he is named as a search book 'December/Winter' – also an appropriate name. This search book was published in October 2021. It contains quite a few puzzles that have something to do with winter, but there are also a few other images. In total there are 8 images.
