Crowdfunding tribute

Another great opportunity to preserve the legend and spirit of what record stores meant to most of us.

Here is the crowdfunding project by the German photographer Bernd Jokmanns, a homage to the record store. I nice thing one could support!

“Over the past six years, I traveled around the world to 35 cities on five continents to photograph over 160 record stores – the store owners, the customers, and the people who work there. My photos show their love and passion for vinyl, CDs, and purchasing music in a store. This is what they all share and what really sets the tone for such stores around the globe…

…It is now 2015, the photographic work is done, the layout looks great, and I now find myself in the final stages of the process for this project. I now need your support to help finish the book without having to make any compromises. We will in fact have to finance the high-quality printing costs in advance…

…The book “Record Stores” has nearly 400 pages with more than 500 Colorphotographs – with a size similar to a 10” vinyl, this 27x27cm hardcover will be of high quality, printed by the best German photo book printing companies. Later when the book is published in September 2015, it will cost €49 or $59 plus worldwide delivery costs.”
