Bellerby Seeks Apprentice Globemaker


Would you like to see the world? Bellerby & Co., maker of expensive hand-made globes, is looking to hire an apprentice globemaker.
The company began when Peter Bellerby wanted to buy a globe for his father's 80th birthday present but couldn't find a suitable one. He decided to make one for his dad and another for himself. After all it would take probably three or 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? He soon found out it was tougher than he thought.
He learned a lot and he's willing to share that knowledge with the right person. Could it be you?

I posted a lovely video about the company a number of years ago.
