Sherlock Holmes marketing puzzle
I was sent the following item in a plain envelope, no indication of who it was from or why and no note came with it. The item, or rather items, were two pieces of card with slit cut through them.
Words were written across this slit, but none of them made sense, cut as they were in the same direction as the cut through the card. Upon the card were also some numbers. I was confused, so I used my skills of deduction, as Holmes himself does, and very soon had solved it.
It turns out that this is a piece of marketing for Sherlock Holmes, and a very effective one at that. See how far you get with it.
In the two images below are two cards, on the left hand side is the front and back of one card, and on the right hand side the front and back of the other card.
Print them off, cut them out, stick them together and solve the puzzle. See if you can.
