As with all Gibsons jigsaws, they use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, we use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one. They’ve made some positive changes to the processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but they’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing our plastic waste. The use vegetable-based inks too. The gloss coating on the box gives extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils. Because the box is slightly smaller than there previous designs, they need less room to transport there products which reduces there carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. They’ve also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.
Steve Crisp was educated around the late seventies at St. Martins School of Art, London and at a time when many young students were graduating from college with new styles and ideas. He is a fine example of someone who has gone on from that period to become a well-established, internationally known, award winning illustrator.
He has a large and diverse catalogue of work especially from the eighties and nineties, many of which have become collector’s pieces.
Steve has managed to adapt well to the changing needs of illustration especially with the introduction of digital techniques ten years or so ago.
