idothei guest puzzle #5: American Classic
First published June 2020

Here’s one from the archives. The ‘idothei’ blog reviews and discusses the crosswords published in the UK national newspaper, i (puzzles which, so far, are reprints of old ones from The Independent). The good folks running this blog have, on occasion, hosted puzzles of their own, generally written by some of us who contribute or comment.

Below is my second contribution to these – number 5 in the series overall.

The original publication date (June 2020) may be considered relevant.

This puzzle is dedicated to the memory of Al Jaffee (1921–2023).

Oh, and although there is the online solving app, I’d suggest printing out the PDF if you have facility to do so, and working that way, for reasons.
