The Deluxe Transatlantic Recommended Retailers

In the Spring of 2012, we asked our very good friend Anika Mottershaw to illustrate us a map showing a collection of ‘Transatlantic recommend retailers’, shops we knew or had been personally recommended who sell fine records in the UK and USA. It was out first ever commission for the paper and ran in issue number one. It was supposed to be the centrefold but as a brilliant indication of the InDesign learning curve we would be embarking upon, it ended up being split over a spread.

The original is framed at Drift. In the last seven years there have been many changes to the landscape. Quite a few of these fine buildings have closed their doors, but likewise there have been new ones open and shops like End Of All Music and End of an Ear becoming firm friends and favourites of ours.
