"Situated at the crossroads of that crazy generic twilight zone, where easy listening, loungecore, world musak, and kitsch classics meet, the vinyl junkyard stands as a tribute to a forgotten world of disposable sleeve art. From the team that brought you Highflyers, and containing over 500 illustrations, Album Covers From the Vinyl Junkyard re-evaluates 40 years of L.P. design and dusts off the hidden gems." -back cover.

April77 Creative - A Decade Of Album Cover Design is a 12" vinyl LP sized, premium quality, limited edition book collecting many of the cover designs the studio has produced over the past ten years, including work for a who's who of the Australian Hip Hop scene and other genres. In an era where album artwork has been de-valued to the point where a small jpeg on the screen of a phone is the only place it is often seen, the book presents a rare opportunity to see and appreciate this artwork as it was originally intended - at full 12x12" vinyl size. Beautifully bound and printed on high quality matte paper stock by Whites Law Bindery in Melbourne, this full colour hard bound book with premium gold foil stamped cover features 112 pages of album cover design as well as internal and supplementary artwork for many projects, single covers, logos and an exclusive look at the A77 studio. Also included are concepts and alternate versions which have never been seen or printed before. The book also features an introductory essay by Stealth Magazine's founder and editor Mark Pollard, as well as client testimonials by Suffa (Hilltop Hoods), Pegz (Obese Records) and Bliss (Bliss N Eso). As an added bonus many of the Australian Hip Hop artists whose covers are featured were kind enough to contribute their personal thoughts and insight into the briefings, creative process and outcomes for their respective projects. Some of the artists featured in the book include: Hilltop Hoods (Golden Era Records), Bliss N Eso, Pegz, Dialectrix, Plutonic Lab, Bingethinkers, That's Them, Kerser, Spit Syndicate, Tuka, Thundamentals, Chasm, Mantra, Illy, The Tongue (Elefant Traks), Vents, Watussi, Lowrider, Jess Harlen, Overproof, Hyjak N Torcha, Phrase and many more! The only book of its kind which catalogues the past decade of releases and artwork for many of the biggest names in the fastest growing genre of music in Australia - this is truly a collector's item and will be highly sought after for lovers of design, Australian Hip Hop and music in general.

Spinning Popular Culture As Public Pedagogy

"Spinning Popular Culture is a book about the effervescent activity lying (perhaps dormant) beneath the surface of seemingly inert and mundane cultural items in everyday life. It is a book about the power of the Everyday to maintain loyalty to or, at the very least, an unthinking acceptance of particular ways of being in the world. It is also about the capacity of such seemingly mundane artefacts to provoke resistance to this, and to enliven the visioning of social alternatives. It is a book about individual critical analyses of album cover art.Following a brief history of the development of the aesthetics of the packaging of recorded music, eleven internationally recognised critical scholars each interrogate the cover of a particular vinyl record album they grew up with or with which they have some personal experience or resonance. The totality of the cultural artefact that is the vinyl record album is, essentially, dissected and considered from perspectives of paratextuality and pedagogy.In this book, the contributors make the connections of everyday life to memory and history by locating the album in their personal biographies. They then look to the artwork on the album cover to explore the pedagogical possibilities they see resident there. The individual chapters, each in very different ways, provide examples of the exposure of such broad public pedagogies in practice, through critiquing the artwork from both reproductive and resistance positions.Hopefully, readers will be encouraged to look more consciously at the Everyday – the mundane and the taken-for-granted – in their own lives with a view to becoming more critically aware of the messages circulating, unnoticed, through popular culture. Spinning Popular Culture might also encourage the reader to pull out that box of old vinyl records sitting in the back of a storage cupboard somewhere and revisit and rethink their histories. Or maybe, to just find a turntable somewhere and play them one more time!"

Recent years have seen not just a revival, but a rebirth of the analogue record. More than merely a nostalgic craze, vinyl has become a cultural icon. As music consumption migrated to digital and online, this seemingly obsolete medium became the fastest-growing format in music sales. Whilst vinyl never ceased to be the favorite amongst many music lovers and DJs, from the late 1980s the recording industry regarded it as an outdated relic, consigned to dusty domestic corners and obscure record shops. So why is vinyl now experiencing a 'rebirth of its cool'? Dominik Bartmanski and Ian Woodward explore this question by combining a cultural sociological approach with insights from material culture studies. Presenting vinyl as a multifaceted cultural object, they investigate the reasons behind its persistence within our technologically accelerated culture. Informed by media analysis, urban ethnography and the authors' interviews with musicians, DJs, sound engineers, record store owners, collectors and cutting-edge label chiefs from a range of metropolitan centres renowned for thriving music scenes including London, New York, Tokyo, Melbourne, and especially Berlin, what emerges is a story of a modern icon.

A collection of writing about design from the influential, eclectic, and adventurous Design Observer. Founded in 2003, Design Observer inscribes its mission on its homepage: Writings about Design and Culture. Since its inception, the site has consistently embraced a broader, more interdisciplinary, and circumspect view of design's value in the world—one not limited by materialism, trends, or the slipperiness of style. Dedicated to the pursuit of originality, imagination, and close cultural analysis, Design Observer quickly became a lively forum for readers in the international design community. Fifteen years, 6,700 articles, 900 authors, and nearly 30,000 comments later, this book is a combination primer, celebration, survey, and salute to a certain moment in online culture. This collection includes reassessments that sharpen the lens or dislocate it; investigations into the power of design idioms; off-topic gems; discussions of design ethics; and experimental writing, new voices, hybrid observations, and other idiosyncratic texts. Since its founding, Design Observer has hosted conferences, launched a publishing imprint, hosted three podcasts, and attracted more than a million followers on social media. All of these enterprises are rooted in the original mission to engage a broader community by sharing ideas on ways that design shapes—and is shaped by—our lives. Contributors include Sean Adams, Allison Arieff, Ashleigh Axios, Eric Baker, Rachel Berger, Andrew Blauvelt, Liz Brown, John Cantwell, Mark Dery, Michael Erard, Stephen Eskilson, Bryan Finoki, Kenneth FitzGerald, John Foster, Steven Heller, Karrie Jacobs, Meena Kadri, Mark Lamster, Alexandra Lange, Francisco Laranjo, Adam Harrison Levy, Mimi Lipson, KT Meaney, Thomas de Monchaux, Randy Nakamura, Phil Patton, Maria Popova, Rick Poynor, Louise Sandhaus, Dmitri Siegel, Martha Scotford, Adrian Shaughnessy, Andrew Shea, John Thackara, Dori Tunstall, Alice Twemlow, Tom Vanderbilt, Véronique Vienne, Alissa Walker, Rob Walker, Lorraine Wild, Timothy Young
