Replogle Globes announced earlier this year that it will bring back the Austin Globe to its fine selection of classic floor standing globes. Its plans are to make this item available in both a Blue and Antique style map. The Austin is a 16-inch globe ball with illumination that is set with a full die-cast numbered meridian in a cradle style hardwood stand.
The Austin had been a part of the Replogle catalog in years past and was taken off in recent years.
We believe one of the reasons for bringing back one of our favorites is the affordable price point that consumers have asked for. While not an inexpensive globe, it is one of the better choices when looking for an illuminated globe under $1k.

Over the years Replogle Globes has partnered with Discovery developing and publishing a line of globes developed and sold under the Discovery brand. We have learned in the last several weeks that this branding co-op has ended, bringing an end to the availability of these items.
While it is not quite known why the two mega-brands decided to move in separate directions or if they will come back together sometime in the future one thing is for sure, Replogle has not let up in their position as the worlds leader in the manufacturing of its well know product line.
In fact, Replogle has added an additional 6 items to its line up this year, and we are excited to bring them to you. Keep checking our blog for future reviews of these new items as they are released, including the new Kingsly, Adams, Bartlett and Nicollet Globes which are manufactured and sold under the National Geographic brand!
If you have not considered a globe for your home or office, we encourage you to take a look at how these classic items can add a touch of flair and sophistication to any setting.
