Format:Spiral-bound
This travel-sized collection features 165 New York Times daily crossword puzzles originally printed between April 25 and November 30, 2007. The puzzles are clustered in increasing order of difficulty as shown by from one to three stars on the page. Clues appear on the left side and 4" x 4" puzzle grids appear on the right side. Answers are provided on the last few dozen pages. The book is spiral bound with sturdy cardboard front and back covers. This volume is essentially a sequel to the very similar "Little Black And White Book of Crosswords": the "Luxe" moniker refers to a gold finish on the page edges.

5.0 out of 5 stars Durable, portable crossword NYTimes January 12, 2009
Format:Spiral-bound
With a spiral binding that allows you to fold the pages back, this crossword puzzle book is just right for people who like to carry puzzles with them. The book will fit in most purses (tote bags for sure)so when there's time you have access to a great New York Times puzzle! The cover, furthermore, is durable, not soft. Fabulous!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite nice! August 12, 2009
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
What a nice little book! Even gold "gilt" on the page edges. But most important plenty of crosswords. Because the book has a hard back with spiral rings it's easy to open the book "flat" to the crossword you're working on. I bought it for myself but it would make a good gift too.

5.0 out of 5 stars NY Times Little Luxe Book of Crosswords January 4, 2012
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
This book makes a wonderful gift for the crossword puzzler person. Great size (6x7 3/4 inches)to take along with you when traveling or just waiting for an appointment. Has puzzles labeled easy, moderate or hard. Print size is small due to small size of the book, may need to consider this when purchasing.

5.0 out of 5 stars IMPRESSIVE and VERY PLEASED WITH THIS PURCHASE!. August 23, 2013
By IHSSEC
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
At first, I was dismayed to see a mark made on the green cover that was done with a black marking pen, and a black marking pen "dot" on the beautiful gold embossed pages. So I was originally going to give three stars due to this. However, as I always do when I am not fully satisfied, I first went back to re-read the description of the book and it clearly says in the description, that the book "may contain a mark from the publisher" and a "sticker from Amazon". This book also has a sticker on the back from Amazon. And, I am assuming the black marking pen is from the publisher. I was able to "remove" most of the black marking pen. This can be done with a paper towel dampened with water and a drop of dish soap. A pencil eraser will also remove some of the marking pen.
After re-reading the description of the book and going through the book, I feel it deserves a full 5 star rating, since the "marking" on the book is definitely mentioned. I was impressed when I got this book because of the hard cover. I had neglected to see that in the description also. This definitely makes the book imo. I love the fact that it is hard cover and the reason I ordered it, along with two other puzzle books, was due to the spiral binding. Puzzle books need to be designed this way so that each puzzle can be worked on a nice flat surface which is impossible with regular bound puzzle books where the page on the right side is the only side that is worked on comfortably. The left side of regular bound books, is hard to work due to the big fold; but spiral bound puzzle books are PERFECT.
I really love this book and have been having a lot of fun working the puzzles. They are arranged by "stars". One "star" for the easiest, two "stars" for intermediate, and three "stars" for the hardest.

3.0 out of 5 stars SPIRAL-BOUND BOOK DOESN'T LAY FLAT December 8, 2013
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
Little Luxe Book of Crosswords is easily portable. However, spiral-bound, does not mean that it lays flat. Opened in the middle, you have a 1-inch bulge at the spine. You have clues on the left page and squares on right page. Based on the few puzzles that I have done so far, the puzzles seem good.

My 84-year old mother keeps her mind sharp working crossword puzzles and playing Scrabble with me on Sundays. She was so thrilled to get this Luxe edition for Christmas. I couldn't have selected a better gift for her and saw that she brought it on our recent road trip.
