Pigeons of Britain
1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

£14.00

This 1000 piece puzzle celebrates the figures that have made Britain what it is today….in pigeon form! Illustrated by the talented Alice Tams, this jigsaw puzzle is filled with weird, whacky and rather feathery versions of some much-loved British talent…who can you spot?

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 that 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 to reduce our plastic waste. There is a gloss coating on the box for 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.

Alice Tams is a travelling illustrator, largely, of birds wearing hats. She has been drawing since she was dexterous enough to pick up a pencil crayon and is obsessed by colour, fine detail and the natural world. After graduating from Goldsmiths University in 2011 with a creative writing degree she decided to make a career out of animals wearing human clothing. Namely, different birds wearing different hats. After a couple of years of turning up at Brick Lane market in East London every Sunday with her wares, she became a full-time illustrator - running her small business and taking on commissions from her studio in Bermondsey. Last year, after 8 years in London, she decided to pack up her studio and take it on the road. So far she's travelled to Singapore, Malaysia, Borneo, Cambodia, Vietnam, driven the length and breadth of New Zealand and travelled up and down Taiwan, settling in Taipei for now, where she continues to find new, more exciting ways to put birds in hats.

We’re Gibsons, the family-owned jigsaw puzzle and board game company. Founded in London in 1919, we’ve been entertaining generations for over 100 years and our passion is creating the best quality products for all ages.
