Artist Feature: Phil Wilke

Phil Wilke makes spiral-bound notebooks from the covers of some of classic rock's greatest records. They can be used for scrapbooks, journals, photo albums, notebooks...a great way to enjoy the nostalgia of the LP covers in a practical way!   He also creates smaller, pocket-sized notebooks out of baseball cards.

Phil has been a record collector all his life and loves browsing the $1 bins in search of hidden treasures.  A few years ago he saw someone using record album covers to make purses and decided to try to use them for notebook covers. 

His notebooks generally measure 11x12 or 8 1/2 by 11, but he will take custom orders, noting "any record, any size".

This will be Phil's third year at the Bizarre Bazaar; be sure to stop by his booth and check out his work!

More of Phil's work can be viewed online in his Etsy shop or he can be contacted via email at
