Picturing the Record Collector: Dust & Grooves by Eilon Paz

Born out of his successful website of the same name photographer Eilon Paz has now collected a healthy sampling of his portraits of record collectors from around the world in his debut book; Dust and Grooves: Adventures in Record Collecting.

130 vinyl collectors are featured, each in the friendly confines of their record rooms. The first section of the books focuses on the visuals while the second part features 12 in-depth interviews which lets us in as to “what motivates record collectors to keep digging for more records.”

The party starts on Record Store Day, with the book being the “Official Book of Record Store Day,” with a launch event at Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn featuring sets from over 20 dj’s.

Welcome to vinyl heaven!

Congratulations to The Goldfinch, Donna Tartt’s third novel which took 11 years, for winning the 2014 Pulitzer Prize fiction award after being shortlisted on National Book Critics Circle Award and Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction. Keith Hayes made the cover into a perfect blend of original painting with a layer of curiosity and mystery cast upon Theo’s fate.

时隔11年,美国小说家唐娜·塔特(Donna Tartt) 终于在2013年出版了她的第三部作品《金翅雀》(The Goldfinch)。这部将近800页的长篇小说并没有吓退读者,相反,塔特在漫长浩荡的叙述中,对任何微小的细节都能描绘得生动详实,勾画出深层的情感、人性和生活万象。这本书不仅久登畅销榜,挺入美国国家书评奖、百利女性小说奖的短名单,还荣膺最新揭晓的2014年普利策奖。

其实,早在这本书出版之前,Little, Brown & Company 出版社预先公布的封面就引起了众人无限的好奇心。它由出版社内部的艺术总监 Ketih Hayes 设计。
