Shameless Reblog

I saw this little video of an artisanal globe maker on another site recently and was totally enchanted by the art.  I swear I’m not just saying this because of the man’s reference to Hugo, but wouldn’t a globe maker be a wonderful protagonist for a children’s novel?  Or perhaps a short story, in which the lonely globe maker living alone on a tiny island somewhere (perhaps Norfolk Island) draws his dot in the ocean closer to the mainland because he wants to make new friends?
