Peter Pan Map of Kensington Gardens 500-Piece Jigsaw Puzzle
MacDonald Gill (British, 1884–1947)
Peter Pan Map of Kensington Gardens
MacDonald “Max” Gill (British, 1884–1947), younger brother of sculptor Eric Gill, was a skilled and versatile architect, artist, designer, and illustrator. In this poster for the London Underground, Gill “maps” London’s Kensington Gardens as it was imagined in J. M. Barrie’s classic children’s fantasy Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens
(1906), which portrays the gardens as an enchanted place inhabited by fairies.
The poster is from the collection of London Transport Museum, one of the world’s finest poster archives. For a century, copies of all graphic works produced for the Underground were kept, and when the collection was transferred to the Museum in the 1980s, it contained more than 5,000 printed posters and almost 1,000 original artworks. Steadily growing since then, it now offers a uniquely comprehensive overview of a century of British graphic design.
Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, our 500-piece jigsaw puzzles combine superb color reproduction, stunning and unusual images, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzleworkers.
