About this item
When a global pandemic hit the world in 2020 and everyone on the planet was forced into a lockdown, an idea grew about talking to record collectors about their collections. Reaching out to vinyl enthusiasts on Instagram, Iain Wakefield talked to 50 collectors about why vinyl records are so special to them and why they are so addicted to collecting vinyl.
From these conversations, The Record Collectors Club was born. Starting as an online idea, the seeds of this book then grew as the interviews blossomed and more people began agreeing to discuss their collections. Collectors have been interviewed from all corners of the planet with collections varying in size from a couple of hundred to thousands of records.
'World Records: Conversations with Record Collectors' builds on the concept of sharing our record collections visually but digs deeper with the collectors into why they are so addicted to vinyl.
