Lost in Translation :: Japanese to English :: A Poem

A Japanese blog called Ach & Pfui posted a little write up about Pete and Bellerby & Co which translates online as below. Are they really calling Peter an old man? Will have to get a second opinion…

Something for the kids..

We found this cute lesson plan yesterday on Teaching Ideas based around US. We love the idea of children aged 5 – 11 making up imaginary conversations with Peter and writing his biography. Someone needs to actually do this and show us what ideas and artwork the kids would produce!

Who needs a ring when you can propose with a globe?

I’d Give You The World…

With London gearing up for what seems to be another week of gorgeous summer weather, it seems insane to start thinking about Christmas and Hanukkah…. BUT… as our first enquiries start coming in, we ourselves are thinking we should consider planning ahead for once as well? Or perhaps at least start dropping hints.

Anyway… we are pleased to say we can offer free engraving on all festive orders and if you order early enough we can chat about doing super personalised bespoke orders (make it truly your world ay ay).

Globes make for a wonderful present for your boss, a bonus for senior management, personal gift for anyone well-travelled or something the person who ‘has everything’ doesn’t have. The Mini Desk Globes are a needed accessory for a fine desk, while the Classic Globes are a must have for anyone with a library. Both small and large Globes are just perfect for those who appreciate one-off and handmade items.

Choose your colour scheme, whether you prefer a modern or classic design, think of a inscription to add, which base you prefer.. and wallah best and most impressive – thought through – personalised gift – EVER.

We ship around the world. For more information on engraving, designing your own globe and shipping time and costs please contact us on sales@bellerbyandco.com or phone + 44(0) 20 8800 7235.

The Globemaker Vimeo Spreads Around The World!

Since Vimeo kindly chose us as a Staff Pick and put us on their front page (as well as tweeting their 121,855 followers gasp) the video Peter Bellerby – The Globemaker has spread far and wide. We are up to 35,500 views!! We are humbled by the response and positive feedback.

The short film has been shared on twitter over 100 times. It has been written about by Huh. MagazineDevour.comThe Worlds Best EverThosewhomake.com, South Africa’s Cherry FlavaThe Documentary NetworkMental FlossArtnau, Little Green Footballs,
Curiosités de Titam (for our French readers), and the brilliantly named Socks on an Octopus in New York to name a few. Wahhay.

Top Five Uses For That Old Globe Of Yours!

Perhaps you have a lesser quality globe that needs a new lease on life? Trade it in for a newer model (ahhemm we can recommend some great ones that don’t fall apart) … but don’t go tossing that old one.

Here are some ideas and overall favourites.

5. Half a globe becomes a genius planter for flowers. Either a hanging basket or else on a base indoor or out.

4. Chalk Board Globes …. imagine the world how you want to. Chalk paint is fun and easy.

3. A jaunty hat.

Image

2. A cheesy sentimental up-cycled gift to a loved one. With or without cliche quote. I’m a fan of mapping out places you’ve been or places you want to go.

1. We love love love these ceiling lamps!! Major want.
