Middles, Centers, Spiders, & Inserts: 45 Adapters from the Collection of Jules Gayton

Miss Lily‘s Variety recently published Middles, Centers, Spiders, & Inserts: 45 Adapters from the Collection of Jules Gayton, cataloging the Downtown New York City DJ’s collection of 7″, 45 rpm adapters. What started as a shoebox collection eventually became an amassment of near-extinct artifacts of vinyl history. As vinyl was transitioning out and CDS on their way in, Jules Gayton kept collecting these inserts while deejaying throughout NYC’s bar and club scene. Gayton described the object as “a simple round piece of metal that snapped together. They all did the same thing. They enabled the music to be played and enjoyed.” The book was printed in a limited edition of 1000, containing images of Gayton’s most prized adapters as well as a personal essay from the DJ himself. To commemorate the release, Gayton and Miss Lily have also teamed up with fashion line Stussy, producing a limited edition run of shirts featuring artwork from the book. More images after the jump.
