1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle
- Unit Price
Map of London is the gorgeous 1000 piece puzzle by talented artist, Josie Shenoy. 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.
The montage features iconic buildings from the UK’s capital, from Battersea Power Station to Westminster’s Big Ben.
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.
Puzzle dimensions: 68x49cm

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.
