Since 1748, Trooping the Colour has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign. It is held annually, in June, on Horse Guards Parade. The Queen travels down the Mall from Buckingham Palace in a royal procession with a sovereign’s escort of Household Cavalry. Her Majesty receives a royal salute and inspects her troops before returning to Buckingham Palace to watch a Royal Air Force flypast from the balcony. Steve Crisp has captured the remarkable spectacle brilliantly in this patriotic puzzle image.
This 500 piece jigsaw was made in the UK and is packaged in a smart, compact box – the perfect gift for an avid puzzler! As with all Gibsons jigsaws, Trooping the Colour is made from 100% recycled board of the highest quality and is therefore a pleasure to work with again and again.

Steve Crisp was educated around the late seventies at St. Martins School of Art, London and at a time when many young students were graduating from college with new styles and ideas. He is a fine example of someone who has gone on from that period to become a well-established, internationally known, award winning illustrator.
He has a large and diverse catalogue of work especially from the eighties and nineties, many of which have become collector’s pieces.
Steve has managed to adapt well to the changing needs of illustration especially with the introduction of digital techniques ten years or so ago.
