"Ronald Clyne, who died in 2006, made over 500 sleeves for the Folkways label, which was founded by Polish-born Moses ‘Moe’ Asch in New York in 1948. Under Asch’s direction, the label evolved into a fascinating repository for field recordings, spoken word, poetry and indigenous compositions."

About:

Folk Object is an ongoing collection of graphic objects derived from the ornament & utility of folk culture. It's curated by Clifton Burt.

"The folk object stands outside both time and space. It signifies historicity and otherness...
The objects are less objects of ownership than of symbolic intercession, like ancestors. The marginal object stands outside the myth of progress embodied in modernity."
-Jean Baudrillard
