You can’t tell Tajikistan from Tunisia, and think Djibouti is a new tush-tightening workout.
Here’s some geography you can understand: ImagineNations, Wendy Gold’s new line of adorned vintage globes.
Gold, the Marin-based artist behind Art de Toilette, finds the globes at garage sales and flea markets, and decoupages them with recycled materials. The eye-catching results are part history, part whimsy.
Each of the eleven designs is more enchanting than the next: On Flutter By, the continents are covered in hand-cut butterflies, To the Rescue stars Superman and friends, and Where the Wild Things Are tells the classic story as the globe spins.
Because each one takes six to eight weeks to create, it’s too late for holiday orders, but Gold is happy to issue gift certificates.
Your friends will think the world of you.
