5 Inch record in linen hardcover box with handmade original 'papier, letters, nummers' 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 ZEE RAYMOND DIJKSTRA" on the side of the spine. Inside the innercover a 5 inch record. Innercover with autograph by the author and stamp of the publisher Le Souffleur. The innercover is numbered with a
self-adhesive sticker 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 1940 (2nd worldwar published) dutch magazine and self-adhesive number stickers.
Vinyl-record weight: 180 grams. Black vinyl. Handstamped 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 first 5 inch record out of a series of 6.
(nb: the pictures show a slight out of perspective roundness caused by the camera)
