The Vinyl Factory, creators of limited edition vinyl music and art packages for the likes of Grace Jones, Massive Attack, and Hot Chip amongst others, has opened a temporary pop-up store in the Front Room at St Martins Lane Hotel in London to showcase its wares...

The shop will be open for three months (until May 29), and will host exhibitions of new works, plus sell the previous editions produced by The Vinyl Factory since 2008. According to the press info, the intention is for the space to "become a homage to records and the relationship between music and art, celebrating the unique, the tangible and the rare in an age of rapid digital consumption".

New projects in the Vinyl Factory pipeline include a limited edition box set of music for The Most Incredible Thing, the forthcoming Sadler's Wells ballet scored by the Pet Shop Boys, as well an exclusive release of the new album from German producer Tensnake, featuring artwork by the acclaimed Dutch designers, Droog.

The Vinyl Factory pop-up store is open from 11am-7pm Tues-Sat, and 12-7pm on Sundays. More info is online at vfeditions.com.

Sounds great and I'll definitely visit. I've just completed a 2 year photographic project re-interpreting my old vinyl record collection. I must get back into the groove. Pleased to report that my Godson, DJ Lysergide is carrying on the vinyl making tradition.

Check out what this company out of Canada is doing - it's called viinyl (www.viinyl.com) and they allow artists to make digital viinyl's. Or as their site says "The viinyl platform turns your song into an interactive website — a digital version of the 45rpm single with artwork and videos "

They were featured on Springwise a while back (http://www.springwise.com/entertainment/viinyl/).

Their intentions is to enrich the music experience by bringing back the spirit of how music was enjoyed in the days when you had the lyrics, artwork and vibe of the artist at your fingertips. Very cool visual concept. Check out the example some examples:

I love records and wish i could be in London for this. Wonder if there is any chance that they will open up a shop in NYC for a few months, too.
