No other company in the world offers authentic reproductions of similar quality and affordability. Attention to detail is key. Am replicates the complicated "gravure" printing process, resulting in the sharpest lines, words, and symbols even on the smallest size globe. All AM globes are made using original charts, researched by AM for their historical accuracy and visual appeal.
Centuries ago globes were made by gluing copperplate printed gores on a plaster finished papier-mache 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. AM's globes offer history at your fingertips and highlight some of the world's most famous cartographers: Mercator, Hondius, Kaerius, and Vaugondy. Measures 12.6" x 12.6" x 19.7". Some assembly required.
