Glasses Made from Vinyl Records

As a gift for his father, Zachary Tipton made his first pair of frames from one of his father's Creedence Clearwater Revival records. This was a gift to his father, who was hopefully aware of what his son was doing with such a precious piece of vinyl.

From a small factory in Hungary, Tipton and his team at Vinlyze make frames for their customers from their favorite records. He starts with surplus vinyl from London, then coats the records in cellulose acetate. His employees make about 70 frames for each model of eyewear. The finished product, he stresses, may vary in shape because each piece of music is unique.

What classic song would you wear?

IN an age where everyone is slowly forgetting about this venyl records... i can't see any sense in re-uning them as glasses. There seem to be a lot of cutting scrap... If i don't love venyl records, i see no sense in carrying a record skeleton on my nose... In case i love venyl records, can even less understand why i should carry a slaughterd record carcass on my nose..

That label is not for that record. For starters, the label has four tracks and the record only has three. Maybe even two, since the third looks like a runout. On top of that, I own this Led Zeppelin album and it looks nothing like this. My guess is that the company presses bogus records and sticks famous stickers in the middle.
