Bellerby & Co The Globemakers

bellerby

Peter Bellerby said:”After a two year search for a globe for my father’s 80th birthday present I was faced with a choice of a modern political globe (albeit frequently available with a generous dose of sepia colouring), very fragile expensive antique models, which you can’t really use on a daily basis or trying to make my own”.

“So the original plan, hatched in a pub in Kings Cross was to make just two, one for Dad, one for me. It would probably take three, maybe four months and cost a few thousand pounds. After all how difficult can it be to make a ball and put a map on it? My last venture was setting up and managing a place called Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes, which within a year of opening had become one of the most interesting venues in London turning over more than £100,000 per week, so perhaps I was a little over confident. Blatantly obsessed with spheres either way!”
