Times change. The village may look the same, but life was very different in the 1960s! Skateboards are now the preferred mode of transportation and the homemade paper sail boat has had to give way to the remote-controlled toy speedboat. At least one thing has remained constant: the river is a great place to go fishing!
There are two 500 piece puzzles in this multi-box, both of which have been painted by renowned artist, Marcello Corti.
As with all Gibsons jigsaws, the beautifully illustrated pieces are made from the highest quality 100% recycled board and therefore a pleasure to work with again and again.
Marcello Corti was born in 1961 in Bergamo, in Northern Italy. Twenty years later, Marcello transformed his passion for photography into a profession and began working with publishers to create art books and photography.
Like many artists in the late eighties, he discovered the computer which transformed his graphics work and has since worked with a number of advertising agencies in Milan. With his partner Barbara Gerardi, who is also an illustrator, Marcello founded a website which promotes illustration, graphics and photography.
These days, Marcello concentrates mainly on pictorial illustration, with the beautiful Italian surroundings being the main source of inspiration
