After messing around with vinyl records for quite a while I came up with two techniques of manipulating the material to create imagery on the record itself.
One style is called ‘Liquid Letters’, where the raised lines stay shiny and the background goes matte. The other style is called ‘Sunken Script’. The image is sunken into the record and the background stays shiny instead.
This is a guest book I made for Studio de Zoete Inval in Amsterdam. It’s a case binding with blank pages, 24x20x2,5 cm. 240 pages/sides. I rotated their logo all around the record. I’ve also made sure the record acts as in ‘inlay’, so that it doesn’t just lay on top of the book.
Over in my Etsy shop you can order one of these with your own name, quote, logo or design. Customizable are also the color of the cloth, the option to have lined paper, and choice of manipulation technique.
Here’s a link to Studio de Zoete Inval’s Facebook, have a look!
