Jon Wozencroft, "Out of the Blue"

“I first set my eyes on it one Saturday morning in Rough Trade in late June 1979. The record had just come into the shop… I bought it immediately.” Jon Wozencroft on Peter Saville’s work on Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures album cover, as he developed from the ‘Use Hearing Protection’ posters of Factory Records into a graphic design icon. First published in Tate Etc. Magazine, Issue 10 / Summer 2007.
