Dust and Grooves
This sumptuous coffee table book is the culmination of photographer Eilon Paz?s six-year journey around the globe to unearth the very soul of the vinyl community. A peek into the worlds of more than 130 vinyl record collectors in their most intimate of environments-their record rooms-it combines compelling photographic essays, anecdotes, and quotes with in-depth interviews to illustrate what motivates these collectors to keep digging for more records. The reader gets an up-close-and-personal look at a variety of well-known vinyl champions-including Questlove, Gilles Peterson, and King Britt-as well as a glimpse into fascinating collections of hobbyists and a foreword by The RZA (chief producer of the Wu-Tang Clan). Mesmerizing and moving, Dust & Grooves is a celebration of passion and discovery and a tribute to the spirit of a thriving movement.
