Record Aficionado: Volume 2, Revelation Records 1987-1991
A collection of early releases from Revelation Records from 1987 to 1991, with accompanying reviews, ads, and ephemera.
Conceived as a hybrid catalog, art book, and historical document, this publication is meant to invoke a sense of this important label and its history, as well as the vibrant hardcore scene of the period.
Each volume of Record Aficionado is a treasure trove of subcultural design history. Whether you're an avid record collector who craves visual catnip, a punk exploring American hardcore history, or a graphic designer interested in the vernacular/DIY design of subcultures and the specific visual aesthetics of hardcore and punk, this collection offers plenty to consider.
