National Geographic Carbon Classic Illuminated Globe

About The Globe

The Carbon Classic globe is one of the latest series of globes to feature National Geographic cartography. Over 2,000 place names are included. The text is clear and each country is given a different colour with a darker tone around the borders to accentuate the political mapping. In the oceans, undersea trenches and basins are named with arrows indicating major ocean currents. Shading is used to represent ocean depths. Designed in Italy, the cartography is contemporary and well styled.

Choose between illuminated or non-illuminated versions. The illuminated version is mains powered and comes complete with a 15W SES fitting bulb that is readily available and easily replaced, as well as a leaflet on how to replace the bulb (adult supervision required).

The globe was just what we wanted for our 6 year old grandson who is besotted with maps; clear writing and national boundaries and very well lit with the LED bulb option.
