Rapha rides for Japan, Maeda on craft, dry-transfer Field Notes and more in this week's online snapshot

Celebrating “the tangible and the rare in an age of rapid digital consumption,” the label The Vinyl Factory has popped up at London’s St. Martin’s Lane Hotel with a shop showcasing their extensive assortment of records and limited-edition box sets—from Bryan Ferry’s Kate moss-graced albums to prints of Grace Jones by Chris Levine. The temporary store will be in the hotel’s Front Room through 29 May 2010.
