Is there any literature that goes into detail about ideas and best practices for designing puzzles?

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Puzzling Stack Exchange! Apologies about the confusion over migration. It looks like this question as written may be too broad for us to answer, though. Could you edit to narrow the scope of possible answers? For instance, you could specify which types of puzzles you're looking to create. Thank you! $\endgroup$ – user20 May 19 '15 at 19:00

    $\begingroup$ I would say it is too broad if there would be too many answers. As it stands, the question is still waiting for a single answer! (I, for one, would be very interested in some answrers here myself.) $\endgroup$ – BmyGuest May 19 '15 at 19:12

    $\begingroup$ Swinging the close hammer because this is a "big list" question, which are generally off-topic across the Stack Exchange network (see meta.SE posts meta.stackexchange.com/q/158809/180276 and meta.stackexchange.com/q/98334/180276). $\endgroup$ – Doorknob May 20 '15 at 12:49
