Eilon Paz has just published his debut 416-page coffee-table book, Dust & Grooves, revealing over 130 vinyl collectors and their collections in the intimate environment of their record rooms. Mesmerizing photographic essays team in-depth interviews to illustrate what motivates record collectors to keep digging. Giving readers an extensive insight into the passion behind collecting, the book is divided into two parts: the first featuring 250 full-page photos framed by captions and select quotes, and the second consisting of 12 full-length interviews that delve deep into collectors’ personal histories and vinyl troves.
