Earth Day Freebies

These are by far my favorite globes!

I find this to be almost magical. What a way to map the earth.

My favorite spheres!

I love the layers in this with the blue background.

This is just the most beautiful of hand colored engravings.

The seasons of the earth. My we have stepped into one of my favorites - Spring.

Ah the French have such a way with their expressions. Such attention to detail!

Celebrating Earth Day today I thought what better freebies than some of these images of how man use to view earth. I am always amazed at how they figured some of these out. The engraving are so complex and beautiful. I hope you all enjoy them!

These are really special, Eathday was something I remember in the
70's, we just keep on trying to fix this earth, I know time is running out in some places. But if we all did just one could make very large changes.
Happy Friday, Mary
