“The Globemakers: The Curious Story of an Ancient Craft” by Peter Bellerby

Thursday, February 22nd 7:00—8:00 PM

Online Zoom

Join Peter Bellerby, founder of Bellerby & Co. Globemakers, in this visual tour through the history of Globemaking, how it almost became a lost art, and how he is bringing it back, one beautiful hand painted globe at a time. His book, a full-color photographic portrait of a fantastic art, “The Globemakers” is an enlightening exploration of globes, or “earth apples,” as they were first known, and their ability to show us ourselves and our place in an infinite universe. If you don’t want to run out and buy globes for yourself and all of your friends after this talk, we’ll be surprised!

Peter Bellerby is the founder of Bellerby & Co. Globemakers, the world’s only truly bespoke makers of globes. His team of skilled craftspeople make exquisite terrestrial, celestial and planetary globes. The business began after he failed to find a special globe for his father’s 80th birthday – and decided to make one himself, taking him on an extraordinary journey of rediscovering this forgotten craft.
