I know this sub is for maps, but hand-made globes can be MapPorn too (source in comments)

Overpriced, pretentious hipster products. They use large format printers to print out the maps, then just glue them to the globe. Then they “hand color” a few token things, like coasts (why? why not just print those too? because now its “hand made”), and throw in a couple sea monsters or polar bears, and boom, a $20k globe.

This guy only started making these in 2008 after he was bored one day. It’s not like he’s some purveyor of a forgotten skill. He literally prints a map and glues it to a sphere.

Check out this advertisement they put on Vimeo a few years back, its cringeworthy: https://vimeo.com/63511505

The guy freely admits “it took me a year and a half to figure out how to put a map onto a globe” — dude, geometry can help!
