Buying your first record and not sure how to properly store it? Already have a collection and looking to improve on your skills as a collector?
Freshly new record label Float had you in mind when they commissioned an illustrated guide that gives vinyl owners like you the important need-to-know information on how to best look after your records.
The seven-point guide can be found on the inner sleeve of their debut release by Andrea Belfi called Ore — a collection of tracks filled with stirring, percussive minimalism. As The Vinyl Factory reports, “the guide references the designs of by-gone major label inner sleeves that would carry related records or further instructions as standard.”
Float have shared the first four steps of the guide with TVF in honor of the release of Ore. For the rest of the guide and to get your hands on the beautiful album you can head to Float’s website here.
