Come on a journey through the iconic typography found in a record collection. Discover how typography reflects pop culture and nostalgia. Experience how coming across a record from your teenage years can give you a Proustian memory-rush. You’re invited to send in your favourite album cover lettering in advance so that we can create a typographic playlist.
