Attention to detail
Attention to detail is key. A complicated 'engraving' printing process is replicated, which results in the sharpest lines, words and symbols even on the very small globes. Many years ago globes were made by gluing copperplate printed gores on a plaster finished papier-mâché core. This globe is handmade from specially reproduced paper gores.
