Mixtape Poster, Volume Two by Kate Bingaman Burt

Mixtape Screenprint Kate Bingaman Burt

The mixtape holds a special place in my heart, and these awesome, lovingly hand-illustrated mixtape posters by Kate Bingaman Burt (screen printed by Rand Renfrow) bring back so many great memories of exchanging tapes with my friends in junior high and high school and of me sitting in front of my boombox with the radio on, waiting for that one song to come on the radio station so I could immediately press the “record” button, which never quite worked out perfectly because I always either got the end of the dj talking or only pressed the button halfway down for a second or two, so there was always a squiggly, high speed part at the beginning of the song before I realized what was going on and pushed the button down the whole way. I still have several cherished mixtapes in my ever dwindling cassette collection, and I’m going to have to dig them out and give them a listen because I’m all nostalgic now. – found via Bangback

    I love it! This reminds me of being a teenager… making an iTunes playlist is just not the same!

    These are really beautiful, thanks for sharing – I love Kate’s work!

    I used to use my stereo to record my own radio station as a child…I just hope the tapes never re-surface!! x
