It’s A Small World

Bellerby-and-Co-Globemakers-5

When I was a child one of my most treasured possessions was a small globe. Of course it was an inexpensive, mass produced model, nothing like the beautiful, handcrafted globe above from Bellerby & Co. Globemakers. Founded in 2008 in London by Peter Bellerby, who hoped to revive the vanishing art of globemaking, the firm uses techniques that go back to the 15th century. Maybe when I grow up, I’ll be able to afford one of these beauties.
