    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Puzzling! Would I be right in guessing that you're affiliated with the "Codex Enigmatum" thing mentioned under the puzzle? If so, please take a look at puzzling.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/4340/… which has some advice on PSE's norms around promotional stuff. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ In this case, the big notice at the bottom is frankly too much, and makes this as much an advertisement as a puzzle. That's not really what PSE is for. I've cropped it out, but if you want to add some text explaining where the puzzle comes from -- and disclosing your affiliation, if any! -- then that would be fine. (More than fine: there should be some such text. But I couldn't add it and be sure of getting it right, because e.g. I don't know whether the puzzle is actually in the book.) $\endgroup$
