The first Jumbo crossword appeared for Christmas 1970. It was compiled by Edmund Akenhead who made the original choice of a 27 by 27 grid, as used in all the crosswords in this selection. Originally published for Bank Holidays, the Jumbo Crossword became a weekly publication in 1997. The Jumbo is not simply a larger version of the daily Times cryptic crossword- it gives its compilers a chance to exploit the clueing possibilities sometimes of words, but more typically phrases, titles and quotations that will fit the large grid.
