The 22cm and 36cm Albion PDF’s are also a good idea of colouring for the Albion 50, Albion 80, Curve, Tri and Churchill or any other globe that you choose a matte finish on.

Any colour you see on any size globe can be adapted to any other size or style of globe. There may just be a small price difference from those listed on our main website.

One helpful thing to look at is the “land-shading” vs the “ocean-shading” .. with land shading we shade around the coasts inland (Mint Green, Ochre) and with ocean shading we shade around the coast in the ocean leaving the land minimally painted (Britannia Blue, Prussian Blue, Turquoise). You can also request the reverse of this.

Globes that are glossed (Livingstone, Britannia, Galileo) will show the colours in a different way from those with a matte finish (Mini Desk Globes, Albion 36, Albion 50, Albion 80, Curve, Churchill).

Every globe is hand painted with hand mixed colours – so colours can every so slightly vary. Your globe is being made bespoke just for you & will always in some way be unique.

  1. Amazing, stunning globes. I love the cool blue myself. We need one for our office – I may just go ahead and nab one, thank you so much!

  2. I’m looking for a star field globe ceiling light. I found some beautiful ones at the university of washington library. Do you or anyone else you know make them?
