Latin Rhythms record bin divider

A recent find on eBay is this vintage cardboard record divider with the image of Warhol’s Latin Rhythms cover, for making browsing easier at the record shop. Apparently RCA provided this kind of cards to the record shops, that fitted in record bins or drawers that had a bar in the bottom, on which these cards slided. The EP’s itself where then stacked behind the different cards.

The colours of the drawing on the card are much darker and more vivid even than on the record itself. The front of the card is laminated, very glossy. Simply beautiful.
