A Record of my Vinyl collectors journal

A Record of my Vinyl

Not technically a book or a journal, this specialty collector's book is a way of cataloging your record collection. The title, a pun on words is a clever description for this vintage styled record keeping book.  The book description may be a bit misleading;  because this is a structured book,  rather than containing blank or lined pages, each page contains space to fill in for each of the albums in your collection.  There isn't space for freehand noted or other information.  It is like a structured card catalog for your record collection. This book is similar to an accountants journal but for record albums.  I'd imagine the most dedicated of vintage record collectors would have the diligence and motivation to painstakingly record details on all their albums.

This is a niche book for dedicated record album collectors and enthusiasts.  The casual collector might find this to be a fun item to display on their book shelf with its authentic textured cover that looks and feels like a vintage phot album.  I'd imagine only the most serious record album collectors or record album dealers might actually use the features of this book to hand catalog their entire collection.  For those with the motivation and tome  to catalog their album collection the old fashioned way- this book, once collected will become a treasured keepsake or conversation piece to pass down and display.  This book also includes additional features:

- a small amount of Space for notetaking  or memories about each of your albums
-Tips for cleaning  and maintaining a your record collection
-information about selling your collection of records.  These features take up a few pages and are not the bulk of the book.  This book would make a great gift for yourself or a record collector.  As a blogger I received a copy of this book published by Potter for the purpose of writing this review.
