As it’s a completely independent project conceived and funded by ourselves we had a very limited budget. We planned to print between 25 - 30 of each visual using serigraphy or HP Indigo and sell them during the exhibition and on the website to amortize the project.
For each cover, specifically created for this project by the artists using their particular techniques, two distinct objects have been printed:
_ A vinyl cover, which contains an original copy of the illustrated record, has been printed on digital offset press (HP Indigo) at 3 copies (not for sale)
_ A poster printed on fine art paper using screen printing (serigraphy) or digital offset press (HP Indigo).

We voluntarily chose artists with very heterogeneous visual universes to reveal the richness of the images these records are likely to summon. We hope that this style diversity will give the same pleasure that you can have while stumbling upon a wide variety of covers in a record store’s crates. The selection of records, their universe and thematics will act as a governing principle for the show.
