Endeavour Whitby - 500 piece Gift Box
by Gibsons

This puzzle shows the replica of the ship Captain James Cook used to sail to Australia and New Zealand when it arrived in Whitby to mark the 250th anniversary of Cook's first scientific expedition to the Pacific in 1768.

The original Endeavour was first registered as the Earl of Pembroke when she was built in Whitby by shipbuilder Thomas Fishburn in 1764. She was built as a Whitby Cat designed to haul coal before the Navy commissioned and re-registered her as HM Bark Endeavour. Whitby wallows in history, including fishing, the jet industry (did you know that its still the best place in the world to find the gleaming black gemstone so beloved by the Victorians?), Captain Cook and whaling. Whitby also boasts literary connections Bram Stokers famous Dracula features the town, with the vampire first coming ashore here from Transylvania in the guise of a black dog.

Roger Neil Turner was born in Great Bridge, West Midlands, in 1956 and has been painting from a very young age. Growing up in Australia, he returned to England in 1976 and paints representational art in oils, acrylics, watercolours and pastels. Roger employs an eclectic mix of styles and techniques in his work and well known for his stunning harbour paintings.

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.
