No other company in the world offers reproduction antique globes of similar quality and affordability.
Attention to detail is key. All AM-Living globes are made using original charts, researched for their historical accuracy and visual appeal. Centuries ago globes were made by gluing copperplate printed gores on a plaster finished papier-mâché core. Given the limited technology available at the time, a complicated production process, and a multitude of specialists involved, it was logical that only the very rich could afford to own globes. This is illustrated by 18th C. Dutch painters who used globes to symbolize affluence, science, sophistication, and even worldliness. Our globes offer history at your fingertips and highlight some of the world’s most famous cartographers: Mercator, Hondius, and Vaugondy.
