Vinylize doing commemorative poster for Record Store Day

10,000 copies of a pretty fantastic RSD poster will be going to indie stores on April 22. The poster, designed by Zachary Tipton and Bettina Gál (you know, the vinyl eyewear company), includes 26 turntables from Crosley, Uturn, Pro-ject, Tesla and Gramovox, among others.

The poster is based on the Snellen eye chart developed in 1862 and named after the Dutch ophthalmologist Herman Snellen.

Also, if you buy any eyeglass frame at the site, you get a large format version of the poster.
