Japanese author lets you inside his 10,000-record vinyl collection.

As far as work spaces go, you can’t get more inspirational than a wall of 10,000 records. A jazz aficionado with a weakness for record collecting, famously reclusive writer Haruki Murakami has opened up his study for inspection, sharing an interactive tour of the space on his own website.

A glimpse into the creative environment of the man behind cult novels like Norwegian Wood and The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, Murakami admits that he almost always works while listening to music, and that, of the 10,000 or so records in his enviable floor-to-ceiling collection, the majority are jazz. His sound system doesn’t look half bad either.
