Tone 7P – a poster for New Order – limited availability

A2 Poster, gloss stock
Designed by Jon Wozencroft

…discovered in the depths of the Touch archive, this poster advertises the long-deleted Tone 7 and Tone 7.1 from 1997 – New Order’s “Video 5-8-6”, which was recorded in 1982, initially as soundtrack to the opening of The Haçienda in Manchester, England.
These copies are from the original 1997 poster print-run. As such, they have minor blemishes (small crease marks to the edges) which, we believe, will be obscured when framed-up. Be quick! We only have a handful of these A2 Posters available…
