RSTB Soundscreen Design Guest Blog + Touchable Sound

So this week Raven Sings the Blues is the featured guest blogger for our friends at Soundscreen Design. Check out our post on Ensemble Economiques entry to Amish Records' Required Wreckers series.

Plus, while you're there, make sure to check out the rest of the site including their great musician as designer series of t-shirts that include new, very limited (like 60 shirts only!) designs by RSTB faves like John Wiese and Shawn Reed.

Also, since you know that we love 7"s around these parts and bets are on if you're reading this that you might too; check out SSD's latest book Touchable Sound. "Touchable Sound: A Collection of 7-inch Records from the USA, is an exciting celebration of nearly 25 years of labor intensive 7-inch record packaging and design." The book was designed by Brian Roettinger (who does packaging for No Age and Liars) and features essay contributions from Henry Owings of Chunklet Amphetamine Reptile founder Tom Hazelmyer, Three One G founder Justin Pearson, and many more.

They've also hooked us up with a coupon so you can save 15% off the book. Just enter the code: tsrstb15 at checkout. You can buy the book here.
