Published Apr 13, 2009Disco pioneer and all-around musical genius Giorgio Moroder is taking on the role of author for a new book titled Extraordinary Records, which will offer up "a connoisseur's selection of records in a plethora of colors, shapes and forms."
Produced in collaboration with Colors magazine, the book showcases more than 400 cover-less slabs of wax, culled from the collections of long-time super-collectors Alessandro Benedetti and Peter Bastine. Along with records from the likes of Pink Floyd, Queen, the Beatles, Prince and Mastodon, the full-colour pictures capture records printed on gold, clear, spatter and marble vinyl, in designs ranging from butterflies to hearts to stars to even a tree-shaped disc and one in the form of a seashell. Seriously, just try to not drool over these images here in this gallery.
Extraordinary Records will be out in May via Taschen.
