A limited-edition A1 poster showcasing the best of turntable design – the cool, the quirky and the classic.
Vinyl and turntables are making a massive comeback – serious music fans have never fallen out of love with the format, but now a whole new generation are discovering a quality of sound that digital just can’t deliver.
But what’s really special about turntables is the cool design – whether it’s collectables like the Electrohome Apollo, which features slick UFO styling worthy of a ’50s B movie, or the functional simplicity of Braun’s ‘Snow White’s Coffin’ by Dieter Rams, one of the most influential designers of the ’50s and ’60s.
The poster also features some brilliantly quirky pieces like Simon Elvins’ paper turntable, portables including Grundig’s retro classic Phono Boy, and sleek modern masterpieces that wouldn’t look out of place in Philippe Starck’s front room.
Printed on premium-grade 170gsm gloss paper, the poster measures H841mm x W594mm (A1) and costs £14.99 plus £5.55 p&p.
