Berlin On Vinyl – a coffee table book

Posted in Musik Department Berlin, Musik für alle with tags , on 2. Juli 2014 by Musik Department

after three years of development & diggin we proudly present and offer the first MD product

Berlin On Vinyl – 144 pages, 219 covers & images


– Schönhauser

Since the inception of the Vinyl Record, the album cover has been the source of information about the product, author or artist. It educates the consumer about the recorded content, and its photography and graphic design are meant to enhance the listeners understanding of the artists recorded vision.

This particular picture-book project moves the musical aspect of the vinyl record in the background and allows for a new view on cover design. With this particular focus in mind, thematically framed, a mirror image evolves of a unique era of Berlin.

– Morgens um 5

Conveying the rhythms of continuous architectural and cultural changes over centuries, from the sixties to the eighties, this book documents a one of a kind snapshot of one of the greatest cosmopolitan cities in the world.
We are inviting you to explore and enjoy a leisurely walk through Berlin – via Vinyl album covers.

– In Berlin, in der Nacht, in den Straßen
