|These unique bookends are created from old recycled vinyl albums. They make a great conversation piece, and
they will look great on any bookshelf! Now, the true uniqueness of this bookend (aside from the fact that it's an
actual 12" vinyl LP) is that YOU can choose the album label. I place an overlay (reproduction) of a famous
album label that YOU select from my list, and after the album is bent into a bookend, my new labels are applied.
Many of the album titles I offer are classic albums that are incredibly rare and valuable, some worth hundreds of
dollars, while others are simply some of the greatest albums of all time. These bookends are a great way to show
off your love for a particular band, artist, or your favorite classic album!
I apply these reproduction labels straight and centered (see photo). I take great care in making these one at a time.
These albums are not simply thrown over a burner and allowed to melt, it’s not that easy! I have also tried very
hard to use the original style label (first release) for each classic album, not later 1980's pressings, reissues, or
repackages, in order to make them more authentic. The discs I use may not be in perfect condition
before they're bent, but I strive to locate LP's that haven't been abused with
deep scratches, or scuffed beyond belief, so they will at least look shiny on
The bookends themselves are 12” in diameter (the depth of most bookshelves)
and have a bend slightly less than 90 degrees to allow them to sit “tight”
against the books. These bookends are designed to be used with the base of
the album bookend going underneath your books (see photos above), and
Side 1 of each bookend will always face outward for viewing (in the case of
a double album, sides 1 & 3 would face outward).
These bookends are sold in PAIRS only. But rather than selling two of the same album, I allow you select
any 2 albums from my list in order to make up your own unique pair of bookends. You can have a theme, such
as The Beatles first album (“Introducing The Beatles”) and their last album (“Abbey Road”), or mix and match as
you like. It’s totally up to you!
If you would like some suggestions as to what albums to choose for your bookends, perhaps as a gift to a music
fan, please send me an e-mail at : MikesCreativeWorks@yahoo.com , and I will be glad to help!
