Globe Makers

A few years ago, I spent several months researching the artists, cartographers and companies that have designed and manufactured terrestrial globes. While I have put aside writing the book for now, I am happy to share this list of people and companies that have been associated with the creation and distribution of globes. If you know of any names that are missing, please send an email to registerkm@longwood.edu.

Thought some of you would be interested in a miniature globe I just completed. The body of the globe is an antique ivory ball from a game called carpet bowl that was played in Britain in the late 1800’s, and the map was taken from a Wyeth painting done for the National Geographic Society in 1927. You may view it on my website at http://www.scrimshanders.com. Just click on the Wickford page, then store catalog. The globe is a featured product and can be viewed by clicking on the photo. Let me know what you think.
