New York: 1982. Item #5182
New York, NY. 1982. 12 x 12 in.
New Order and Factory Record ’s commitment to beautiful design produced some of the most iconic album artwork of the 1980s. Designed by Peter Saville and featuring a painting by his then girlfriend, M.J. (Martha) Ladly, on the cover, New Order’s lesser-known 1981-1982 EP, is part of that history. The posters are the exact size of an LP sleeve, reflecting the records' exact look. The EP helped push the band into the US mainstream and marked a shift in both their sound and visual identity.
