The style of the Livingstone globe is based on a traditional Philips globes from the early twentieth century – but as with all of our globes it features a modern and up to date map that is hand painted to your colour specifications.
The colouring of the Gagarin is reminiscent of “Earth From Space” –
The ocean here is based on our Prussian colouring, other colour suggested is Glacial Blue.
Requested colouring here was lighter than previous versions, the greens on land can be darker. Lighter recommended to ensure you see all the cartography as clearly as possible.
Illustrations are by request, anything you dream up land or sea is hand drawn and hand painted.
With a matte finish and different shade of ocean –
The globe will have a gloss finish unless requested in matte – both look great.
The brass pieces are made in our Derbyshire foundry and turned wooden washers complete the design.
The globe itself has both country political and physical detail as well as extra demographic and political information such as country leaders and populations. This information is optional and will will be in touch to discuss alternatives.
The Livingstone is also available as a Celestial globe, in Prussian Blue, Ochre, Mint Green, Champagne, Aquamarine, Cobalt, Cool Blue, Glacial Blue and Reed Green. Please see other listings.
