In a London workshop, artisans craft bespoke globes

Description

In 2008, Peter Bellerby set out to buy his father a high-quality, hand-made globe as an 80th birthday present. When he could not find one that met this standard, the Briton decided to make it himself -- and, in the process, inadvertently catapulted himself into a new profession. Just over a decade later, his company Bellerby and Co claims to be the finest globe-maker in the world, selling tailor-made products to an array of international buyers.
