I’ve had the pleasure of testing a couple of Vismut puzzles, though not this one, and she does write some wonderful clues. The clue gimmick where both the misprints and corrections are used is very...

Excellent, thanks Tibea, and not as daunting as I first feared. Some may be aware, I certainly wasn't....

A lovely puzzle, thanks, Tiburon. I do like a bit of cut and paste when we are neatly guided to the final arrangement as here. Season's best to all....
