Changing of the Guard - 1000 Pieces
by Gibsons

Flying gracefully over Lincoln Cathedral, these four aircraft highlight the importance of past and present UK air defence. In this 1000 piece puzzle by Matthew Emeny, the Lancaster and Spitfire are shown breaking away from the formation, to symbolise old heroes moving aside to make way for the Vulcan and a modern-day fighter, the Typhoon, as the RAF continue their story

Based in Ipswich, Suffolk, Matthews love for painting began in his teenage years when he started painting scenes from around the Suffolk countryside.  

In 2013 he acquired a collection of black and white postcards featuring WWII aircraft and it inspired him to paint his first military aircraft, bringing colour to one of the old postcard scenes. The painting revealed a more detailed and realistic approach, and realism quickly became his preferred painting style. Matthew now specialises in military aviation, depicting aircraft found throughout history and today. He has a huge passion for detail and creates compositions which portray subjects accurately and in a way that is highly detailed and visually engaging

As with all Gibsons jigsaws, they use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and commission the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together, in fact, they use the thickest puzzle board on the market.

Gibson's have made some positive changes to their 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 have used recyclable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing plastic waste. They 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 previous designs, less room is needed to transport the puzzles, which reduces the carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. There is also an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.

With over 250 Gibsons jigsaws available here, at The Yorkshire Jigsaw Store, there is plenty to choose from. From the large piece puzzles to the most popular 1000 piece puzzles there is a jigsaw for everyone. The gift box range of 500 piece puzzles offers the perfect present.

Gibsons have created ‘The Piecing Together’ puzzle collection. This range of puzzles has been specifically created for those living with dementia, limited fine motor skills or visual impairment allowing them to enjoy the wonderful pastime either alone or with loved ones.

Founded in 1919, Gibson’s have been entertaining generations for over a century and are proud to have such a rich British heritage. From day one the company has been devoted to providing fun family pastimes for all ages. They now have over 250 titles in their jigsaw collection.

Gibsons jigsaw puzzles are loved by many, with fans including the England Rugby team, singer Anne- Marie and Her Majesty the Queen herself!
