Factory Records : The Complete Graphic Album
This is the definitive overview of the artwork of the seminal Manchester based Factory label, covering its iconic record sleeves, posters, ephemera, venues and packaging. After a foreword by the late founder of Factory, Tony Wilson, an introductory essay discusses the label's role in bringing design to the mainstream. Thereafter the book is organized as a generously illustrated catalog, arranged by the famous Factory reference system. Factory Records, as part of the story, has been given its own reference number Fac 461 making it a collectable item in its own right.
