State-of-the-art technology combines with an old-world
look and feel to create a very special world globe. As a tribute to early
cartographers, the globe is colored using parchment colored oceans and
Earth-toned color palette. The look is completed with soft shaded country
borders, another traditional cartographic method which shows where
boundaries are, but leaves blank space for text for optimum readability. The
proprietary National Geographic fonts used also add to the old-world look.
Finished off with a calibrated, gold-tone semi-meridian sitting upon a rich,
walnut-finished base, this globe has a traditional look, but loaded with
state-of-the-art features that make it a truly outstanding choice.
Electrical cord, which is not shown in the picture, routes through the base
instead of hanging from the south axis as found on most illuminated globes.
