Vinyl: The Art of Making Records is a celebration of the medium's fascinating history and triumphant rebirth.
From weighty 78s to feisty 45s, from eccentric Eps to legendary long-players, it brings vinyl off the shelves and out of the crates.
The book will spotlight the development of the discs themselves; pioneering lalles such as Columbia, RCA Victor and Atlantic; ground-breaking artists and their game-changing releases such as Sgt Pepper by the Beatles, the Sex Pistols, Pink Floyd and Pearl Jam; the idiosyncratic and iconic packaging developed by daring designers and the special collectors editions like messages scratched in run-out grooves, limited editions, picture discs and deluxe reissues.
