For the past 50 years, Robert Opie has been finding the pieces that make up the giant jigsaw of British social history. His collection is on display at the Museum of Brands in Notting Hill, London, where the displays give a sense of the evolution of culture and lifestyle since Victorian times. The main focus has been on consumer packaged products, from crisps, sweets, and breakfast cereals, to drinks, biscuits and soap powders.

The Brands That Built Britain comes in 1000 pieces and features some of our favourite brands that are still around today. Take a trip down memory lane as you piece together the vintage packaging of brands such as OXO cubes, Kellogg's, Marmite and McVitie's.

About The Artist:

Years ago Robert Opie began to record the history of brands and products that surround us in daily life. His collection can now be viewed at The Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising in London.

From Gibsons:

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.

We’ve made some positive changes to our 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 we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing our plastic waste. We 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 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 49x68cm when complete.
