VINYL SPINES – THIRTY THREE & ONE THIRD – Preparing a design for a book about album art, I wanted the spine to look like sleeves stacked on a shelf. I spent time photographing boxes of albums in varying lighting conditions. I was struck by the abstract nature of the linear patterns which emerged in the photos, particularly in bright sunlight. The print is the result of working further on a number of the images which were brought together to produce one long ‘shelf’ of spines. From a distance it appears to be a series of subtly varying vertical strips; it is only when you get much closer that you actually discover what the print is all about. I have since done two colour variations of the design which are designed to be seen from a distance at first and bleed to the edge of the paper.
