# A simple nonogram

Solve the nonogram.

• I think your definition of simple differs from mine Mar 2, 2017 at 15:41
• I'm a little way through and it seems clear what kind of thing is happening. Nice! Mar 2, 2017 at 15:57
• "Ah. This is obviously some strange usage of the word simple that I hadn't previously been aware of."

• (I have a comment to make about the "simple" thing but will refrain for now.) Mar 2, 2017 at 15:58
• The comment I was going to make was: I'm pretty sure there is in fact a simple nonogram in this puzzle. (And lo, there is.) Mar 2, 2017 at 17:18

or perhaps I should say

PSE.

I confess that I only bothered going this far by strict logical inference

before allowing myself to make the obvious assumptions about the structure of the solution, leading to this (where white and yellow should now be treated as equivalent):

whereupon it's clear how to get to the solution at the top.

• After you had mentioned the "nice thing" in the comments I noticed the positions of the empty rows and columns and suspected a nested nonogram (Nonogramyoshka?). But you had a headstart of an hour and I had little hope of beating you. Nice, indeed! Mar 2, 2017 at 17:21
• Eek! Let me check. Mar 2, 2017 at 17:31
• Oh yeah, sorry, most of them are one column further right than they should be. Fixing 'em properly may be a little nontrivial but I'll try :-). Mar 2, 2017 at 17:32
• OK, fixed. Sorry about that. Mar 2, 2017 at 17:39

Gareth McCaughan solved this, but here's an animation of the solution:
