Notes Not the most famous of Saville’s designs (no prizes for which one that would be). Released after Curtis’ death it is, however, the one I bought on vinyl. I borrowed the other two albums (Unknown Pleasures and Closer), taped them on either side of a C90 and made my own cover out of a blurred magazine photograph. I think I bought this album in a record shop in Bromley in ’82, but memory fades, a little like the white ink on the thick card stock of this album.

This isn’t the deluxe version which came cloth-bound with a white ribbon, but I prefer this more utilitarian version. With such minimal design, the details are of course all important: the placement of the album title towards the bottom of the back cover supported by Saville’s logotypes and the use of the different typefaces. My favourite aspect is the decision to have the two inner sleeves accessible from the upper inside – unlike traditional gatefold sleeves – and also the rounded corners facing the spine on both the outer and inner sleeves.
