Do you know how handcrafted Earth globes are made?

Is there any sense in handcrafting globes from scratch when everybody uses Google Earth?

Sometimes objects go beyond their function. Sometimes, only sometimes, objects are also valuable for the process of making them and the knowledge that likes behind it. It is about keeping alive a craft and a quality that was there before ourselves. It is about an atemporal beauty that can not become obsolete. For all that, we enormously respect the work of Bellerby & Co, who make Earth globes in a totally artisan way in the GPS times.
