7 Globe Images
Today we have a wonderful collection of various Globe Images! Some of the Globes are fairly basic and simplistic and some are truly quite elaborate and detailed. I think that it is amazing how accurately these old globes represented positioning of the Earth’s axis along with the lines of latitude and longitude. One even has a mechanism that can set the angle of the Earth relative to the Sun during the Earth’s annual rotation. This allows for depiction of the seasons with Summer and Winter Solstice days and the Equinox days of Spring and Fall. All of these images are truly interesting. I think these would look great in Steampunk Projects or a Handmade Masculine Card!
Shown above are a couple of Stock Globe Images! These were both scanned from a rare Antique Printer’s book that dates to around circa 1880′s. Seen are two different black and white images of Globes on Stands! Such classic looking objects to use in your Art.
Featured here is an Antique Globe Picture that was also scanned from the circa 1880’s rare Antique Printer’s book. Shown is a traditional looking Globe on a wooden stand. The angle of the Earth’s axis as it rotates was obviously known a long time ago. The astronomers using old-fashioned telescopes didn’t have high-tech equipment and must have been very smart!
Pictured above is a fun Retro Globe Image! This black and white illustration shows a nifty looking Globe on a metal stand. This globe is different in that it appears that it may not be solid, but regardless of that the lines on it are quite bold! A cute little image to use in your Art!This is a Globe from an 1860’s Catalog! This one is very ornate, with all sorts of fancy ornamental work on it, including three carved figures on the base. The intricate details of the figures adorning this globe are truly quite amazing I think. I cannot imagine how long it might have taken to hand- craft this piece!
Globe Clip Art
Here’s a nifty old fashioned looking globe. Interestingly, the instruments on this globe used to set the Earth’s axis and read latitudes and longitudes appear to be almost as advanced as what are probably used today! Perhaps this one was used by someone with a scientific background.
Pictured above is an interesting illustration from an early Children’s Geography book circa 1885. This engraving of the Earth with clouds swirling around it is almost dreamlike and surreal. Such an imaginative image!
