Aladin cover, 1999

Aladin, a French magazine for antiques enthusiasts, came to interview George about his gallery.

"Ce jeune Monsieur aux petits airs de dandy new-yorkais, qui se detourne a peine de son ordinateur en ecoutant vos propos, est le grand specialiste des globes du pays, quie compte deux cent soixante millions d'habitants et on ne sait combine de millions de collectionneurs..."

"Dans le lot, il s'attire une clientele de grands et fortunes collectionneurs qui decouvrent l'univers fasinant de l'epoque des grands navigateurs."

General Translation:

[This young man with a bit of the air of a New York dandy, who hardly looks up from his computer, is the major specialist of globes of his country, which has 260,000,000 inhabitants and who knows how many millions of collectors...]

[He attracts a clientele of well-to-do collectors who discover the fascinating universe of the epoch of the great navigators.]
