Translation: The Memory
5 Inch record in linen hardcover box with newspaper collage.
The box is opened by sliding out a cardboard innercover attached to a wooden spine.
The spine is attached to the innercover by a piece of linen, with the text “DE HERINNERING" on the side of the spine. Inside the innercover a 5 inch record. The innercover is handnumbered 1 to 6.
Size of the box: 15 - 15 - 1,4 cm. Total weight: 200 grams.
The collage is made by old printed paper from a 19th century french newspaper and oilpaint.
Vinyl-record weight: 180 grams. Black vinyl. Handwritten and drawn recordlabels. 33 Rpm. Each record is individually cut (not pressed) by hand. This means that every record is an original. Very raw and loud cut. The quality of the cutting is very high, and better then any industrially made pressing I have heard from my music till now (The same goes for all other 5 inch records in this series). Limited edition of 6. Concept, design Raymond Dijkstra. Collage and box are handmade by RD.
This is the fourth 5 inch record out of a series of 6.
(nb: the pictures show a slight out of perspective roundness caused by the camera)
