A brand new bag: vintage record store carriers – in pictures | Books

Jonny Trunk started collecting record store bags about five years ago. “I was nostalgic about Woolies and Our Price, so I asked record dealers and collectors if they had a stock of bags,” says the DJ, writer and founder of Trunk Records. The response was so positive that he created AZ Record Shop Bags (Fuel, £24.95), a history of record stores and their bags.

“It’s a special journey,” he says. ‘Nostalgic of course, but also about purchasing behaviour, retail chains and the teenager who bought hit parades every Saturday.’
