We recently discovered the fantastic work of American artist Wendy Gold and loved how she mixed beautiful illustrations with vintage maps and globes.

We also loved the fact that each of her globes is made by hand and therefore unique. Different sizes are available and you can even ask the artist for a specific color palette or request a custom commission. That would make the perfect gift for a travel loving friend or a nice addition to your personal map collection.

Head to Wendy Gold’s website to see more of her work and find the perfect one to “add some color and spirit to your world” as the artist puts it.
