About Catawiki's record auction
Popular among music lovers and collectors alike, records or vinyls are now enjoying increasing sales and a growth in popularity among consumers, even among those who do not own a record player! Modern record players have their origins in the Phonograph, invented in 1877 by Thomas Edison. This device recorded sound waves as etchings or impressions on a rotating disc or “record”. Records became identifiable by their sleeves - printed cardboard covers used to package sets of 45 and 78 rpm records. In the middle of the 20th Century, designers such as Bob Cato were responsible for increasingly eye-catching and innovative cover designs and it was at this point that covers became a marketing device and an expression of creativity.
