Set the Record Straight
Inspired by how vintage encyclopedia graphics achieve the maximum visual impact with deceptively simple and minimalist layouts, artist Gene Rogovitz created his stark "info-graphic" series as an homage to these bygone books and well-known objects. His LP print is doubly nostalgic as it also captures the excitement the artist felt when he received his first turntable from his father at age 13. At a time before the CD and light years before the MP3, the way to spin the hits of the day was on an LP. Like an artifact displayed in a museum, Rogovitz memorializes this covetable piece of retro recording in his punchy print that is filled with facts about the LP's first appearance and the history of the design. With timeless graphic appeal and a slick aesthetic, this print will hit home with your favorite music aficionado or vinyl collector. Designed and printed on Long Island, New York.
