About the Artist:
Derek Roberts was born in Birkenhead, 1945, and has had a fascination with all things mechanical from a very young age. After training at Birkenhead Art School in the 1960s he was accepted to work as a car stylist with Ford Motor Company. Derek specialises in nostalgic scenes depicting motorsport and vehicles from the 50s and 60s, as well as modern subjects. He also enjoys landscape painting and teaches watercolour to adult groups. Other commissions have included marine scenes for calendars and numerous commissions for private clients depicting Classic Cars, Sailing Vessels, Aircraft, Steam Loco's, Trucks and Portraits.
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 have 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 size is 68x49cm when complete.
