Barbara Streisand Recycled Record Album Cover Book

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.

Description

Barbara Streisand record album cover upcycled into a blank book. Someone loved this record to death... So I have made a notebook out of the cover. It's my way of saving the awesome covers and giving them a new spin on life.

All my books are original 12"x12" album size, filled with 30 pages of medium weight, multi-use, archival paper. Artistically trimmed to keep as much of the original album cover as possible.

No Vinyl Was Killed In The Making Of These Books!

I love custom orders and have hundreds in inventory that are not listed here. Please message me if you have any questions or are looking for something in particular--I may just have it!

Thanks for checking out Turntable Books!

What you can expect your book to look like:
----------------------------------------------------
Working with recycled materials poses many challenges, but I try to make the best product I can with the materials I am given. I carefully hand trim each cover salvaging the most I can of the amazing artwork on the album cover. Every book is made with care to preserve as much originality as possible.

I work with recycled materials and there are always tiny variables that make each of my books unique with that special hand made feel. There may be slight flaws in the materials as they have lived a long and happy life shielding vinyl from scratches. I do my best to clean and fix everything possible, but you will find them to be full of character and may see remnants of their past life. If there are any major things to be noted I will have that clearly stated in my item description.

For example: This book has original candle wax spilled across it. Were they listening to Cheech & Chong when it happened? We may never know. Since I can't determine which decade it happened in and therefore can't label it even more vintage, there is no extra fee for the wax.

Or: Someone obviously was so in love they had to scribble "Gene Simmons + Suzie=4ever!! KISS rocks!" in permanent sharpie on this one. Since you might be THAT Suzie, I won't charge extra but there is no discount, and no way to remove.

Have no fear, I will clearly mark or photograph any major flaws that you should know about. Since these are recycled record albums, you can expect normal wear and tear of vintage vinyl. When I trim the edges off it usually minimizes the worst wear and tear and gives it nice new edges. Please understand that each one is unique and poses unique challenges in saving it. You will undoubtedly see remnants of its past adventures. I will not always have pictures of every flaw unless I feel it noteworthy enough to mention.

These are recycled materials with their own character uniquely imprinted onto each cover. These things I find only add more charm, and I personally love that about them. If for any reason you are unhappy, let me know and I will happily replace or refund the album book for you.

Each book is hand trimmed with careful consideration to salvage as much writing and images from the original album. Generally they are all close to original 12x12 size unless that was not possible due to damage or other things. There are some smaller sizes I have been experimenting with due to requests for smaller sizes, and I try to be extremely artistic and thoughtful in the trimming of the smaller ones with constant awareness to keep the integrity of the original album. I can do any size you like and love custom orders.

The paper I use is also recycled and acid free. It is a medium weight paper that is good for writing, sketching, doodling, journaling, songwriting, etc. I offer other paper option upgrades if you want to paint in them or do things that require heavier paper. I have an average of 30 sheets in each large book and 30-50 in each small book. There may be some variance resulting in more at times. I can make custom books with any amount of paper in your choice of papers. I do have a listing called "extra pages please" that you may purchase and I will double your pages.

You may even find bonus surprises inside!! (Yes, Cracker Jack boxes are still around)
If the vinyl sleeve is cool or has lyrics and pictures I include them in the front & back covers as insert pages. If you do not like them, or wonder why I saved them with that crinkled corner, they tear out easy so don't worry. If there are posters I find inside, which is RARE, I do not cut them up but include them clipped inside book.

I also have been known to include drawings, articles, and otherwise totally awesome & strange things I come across. Again, my main goal is to preserve as much of the original state that I found them in as I can! These also tear out easy if you do not have the same sense of humor that I do.

All my books are wire bound by hand using a binding machine. This is a wonderful and versatile binding that allows them to be laid flat or flipped around to the back. It is necessary to watch your wire binding though and be careful not to smash or crush it. You can sometimes fix them yourself but if you have any problems or find your wire got smashed in your book bag let me know and I will happily rebind them. I offer this service at no charge but you will be required to cover shipping both ways.

----------------------------------------------------
Custom Orders
----------------------------------------------------
I do custom work if you are looking for specific albums or desire other things turned into books. I offer a wide range of custom papers inside as well including: drawing, bristol, card stock, watercolor, sketch, lined, music, and graph. At this time all lined, music, and graph papers are limited to sizes 8.5" x 11" and smaller until I find another source for those formats larger. I can also custom make books with more or less pages than my general listings. If you would like your own pages bound in a book I can do that as well. That is great for guest sign in books, business email sign ups, and other customized uses. I'm more than happy to cater to your personal needs so feel free to ask!

I can use an existing album you have or purchase one for you. My goal is to not kill good vinyl so when I purchase them I will first scour through the As-Is bins and empty covers I get from my local record stores. If it is not possible to find damaged I include the album with the book, but please note it does not fit inside perfectly anymore.

Your custom order may be easy to find or completely obscure and difficult to find. I have some pretty good connections to find about anything you want, but the cost of the album can increase a custom order significantly. I use great communication in the process and get an idea of what you want to spend on one before I purchase one. If I cannot find one in your price range, I let you know the price range I found it in.

The possibilities are endless! From the size of the book, to the number of pages, to the paper inside there are lots of choices. I would love to help you build your dream book! Contact me for more details.

----------------------------------------------------
VHS books
----------------------------------------------------
I always intended to do the VHS books but began with records and worked on my process first. I started making the VHS ones a few years ago and they've been a big hit. I rarely have them listed on Etsy but have 300-500 in stock so let me know if you are looking for one.

----------------------------------------------------
Other Services
----------------------------------------------------
I will repair or rebind my books anytime you find the need, so please don't hesitate to ask. I can set up an Etsy item for this and will only need you to pay shipping costs both ways.

Have an idea for something that gets discarded often to be made into a book? Let me know! If I like it and decide to try it I'll send you some of the first ones for free! I mostly stick to the record albums but I am slightly obsessed with book making and often try new things. (If you can't tell)

----------------------------------------------------
Wholesale Orders
----------------------------------------------------
I offer wholesale rates and love working with stores. I have display boxes that hold 20-25 books and have a very small footprint. They come free with any order of $100 or more. For more information on a wholesale account please message me directly so I can find out more information about your shop and send you prices and photos of displays.

I offer bulk promo books for retailers as well and they are a fabulous way to advertise your business in a unique way. I use your own postcards or cards and turn them into notebooks. Message me for more details if you are interested in learning more.
