As the world turns

Frequent vistors to Travel Between The Pages are well aware of my life-long fascination with globes and maps. As a young child, I was gifted a small globe much like the one above, albeit much less expensive and detailed, which sat on my bedside table. It was the first thing that I saw each morning and the last that I saw each night. My little globe inspired years of daydreaming about distant lands and a longing for travel. I recently was reminded of my little globe when I ran across a short promotional video (see below) from Bellerby & Co Globemakers.

“…we have a small team of highly trained Globemakers, painters, woodworkers and cartographers, all leaders in their field. Together we create the hand made globes that Bellerby & Co. has come to be recognised for. It is born from a belief that we never compromise. From the wooden and metal bases, to the artwork, the painting and map-making, each piece is expertly crafted using traditional and modern globe-making techniques, and is lovingly produced in our North London studio; each piece is an individual model of style and grandeur and our globes are works of art in their own right.”

The video is just a vignette.  Here’s the story of Bellerby & Co Globemakers.

    Ah. I’ve been looking at their website. Definitely can’t afford one!

  3. I like the way you allow us to travel in thoughts, imagination and reflection. It helps me in redefining those precious times and memories. I smile with you about those moments.
