The Painstaking Process of Handcrafted Artisan Globes

Globe6

Globe5

Bellerby & Co. Globemakers is a London-based studio that specializes in handmade globes. Founded in 2008 by Peter Bellerby after struggling to find a quality globe, Bellerby’s is now one of only two workshops in the world making handcrafted, artisan globes.

The process includes hand painting individual sections, soaking them, and then stretching them onto the surface. Apparently it takes about six months to learn how to do it properly.

More images of the beautiful (and painstaking) process of globe-making below!

Best of Kickstarter: Mr Bingo’s Hate Mail

bingo2bingo11

In 2011, London-based illustrator Mr Bingo took to Twitter, offering to post personalized hate mail to the first person to respond to his tweet. What started with “Fuck you Jonathan, fuck you and fuck your shit legs” turned into a full-blown Hate Mail service that would go on to sell out within minutes every time it was offered.

Mr Bingo is now looking to release Hate Mail: The Definitive Collection. The prospective retrospective will showcase 156 of his favourite postcards. See more images and check out Mr Bingo’s rapping promo video below!
