The call to create compels us to keep moving forward, and this framed print both celebrates that spirit of invention and illustrates how much things change over time. At its center is a reproduction of Thomas Edison's original, 1880 patent illustration for the phonograph. The detailed technical drawing shows the mechanics of Edison's original creation, with its rotating cylinder-shaped record. In contrast, the patent graphic is mounted in front of the familiar black circle of a modern record. Whether it's displayed in your home, office or music room, this is a perfect piece for history buffs, music lovers or aspiring inventors. Image printed on 100% archival enhanced matte paper, with New Zealand Pine frame. Comes with hanging hardware. From the National Archives collection. Made in Portland, Oregon.
