London Buildings is a gorgeous 500 piece circular puzzle featuring the buildings of London. The intricate illustration was created by artist Josie Shenoy and was originally created as the book cover for her non-fiction picture book, ‘The Buildings That Made London’ which was written by historian David Long.
This puzzle is beautifully detailed, and the circular design provides a historical kaleidoscope that celebrates some of London’s most iconic and magnificent buildings.
London Buildings is part of our range of design-led jigsaw puzzles especially for adults. With the recent wave of young adults wanting to take a ‘digital detox’ from using their devices that can sometimes take over everyday life, puzzling is becoming a popular pastime as it is an excellent way to relieve stress and focus on the present moment. The White Logo Collection is perfect for the new wave of puzzlers who are looking for more contemporary designs rather than traditional puzzle scenes.
As with all Gibsons jigsaws, we 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.
We’ve made some positive changes to our 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 we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing our plastic waste. We 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 our previous designs, we need less room to transport our products which reduces our carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. We have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.

London-based illustrator Josie Shenoy creates intricate illustrations drawing on themes of nature, pattern, traditional decorative arts and a love of storytelling.
Beautifully detailed, with a touch of romance and sophisticated use of colour, Josie’s kaleidoscopic hand-drawn illustrations can be found across the city.
Her work can be found in museums and shops such as Anthropologie, the British Museum, National Gallery, Liberty London, Fortnum & Mason and the Royal Gardens at Highgrove where she was invited to meet TRH The Prince of Wales.
Her first picture book for children, The National Archives: The Buildings That Made London, was published with Bloomsbury, was shortlisted for the World Illustration Awards at Somerset House, and longlisted for the Klaus Flugge prize.
Josie illustrates in her Crystal Palace studio with help from her assistant, Larry the cat. Alongside taking on freelance illustration commissions, Josie designs her own collections of art prints which she sells online and wholesale, in addition to popular licensed greeting card and gift ranges sold worldwide.
