The internet is responsible for the death of many things. Dignity is one and thanks to Google Maps, globes are another.

Growing up, it seemed as if no-one's bedroom was complete without a typically illuminated globe. But these days, their sole purpose seems to be as ironic cigarette/alcohol holders.

Rather like Matthew Cusick who turned maps into pieces of art, Wendy Gold has found nifty ways to recycle globes.

From the superhero themed piece to the family tree globe, she's found many smart ways to reinvent them. Screw you, Google Maps.
