  1. Hello,
    Your globes are absolutely wonderful
    Do you make a Peter’s Projection globe.
    Sincerely,
    Linda Allen

    • Thank you so much Linda. Glad you like what we are doing.
      Projections are for maps, the projection on a globe is the world properly represented, you only need a projection to try and translate that correct globe info to a flat map! The map makers have a much harder time than the globe makers :)
