About the artist:

Elena Limkina’s illustrations are detailed and precise, but her portrayal of the natural geometry of her subjects has a way of bringing out the sublime. Instead of appearing clinical, there’s a dreamlike quality to the plants and animals on which much of her work focuses. Her art captures the elegance of a puma’s slink or the pride in an eagle’s roving gaze despite being totally still. In this way, they’re reminiscent of the biological illustrations of John Audubon, treating flora and fauna with the utmost respect, and, even more importantly, a sense of wonder. It’s no surprise that Elena’s art for this volume of Vinyl Moon leaves us awestruck.

Elena’s work typically focuses on her illustrations and watercolor painting. She has been commissioned by Cartier and Allure, and her work been featured in galleries and studios. In addition to being an accomplished artist, she is a student of medical engineering.

Intro Letter:

I think we have all had that conversation with someone where they are confused about why anyone buys vinyl records these days and in our response we may not be able to explain exactly why we love vinyl but we know that we really do. You know, that sounds a lot like explaining why we love our families. There are actually a lot of similarites between family and collecting vinyl. Both can feel disorganized, expensive, inconvenient, of debateable sound quality (Dad, stop singing…), and particularly fragile (You ever leave your family in the sun too long? That can warp a day’s fun really quick!)

We should all live a long and fruitful life
