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.

  3. Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked
    hard on. Any suggestions?

  4. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured
    I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
    My blog addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

  6. Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at
    alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good
    platform.

  9. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with
    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked
    and I ended up losing a few months of hard work
    due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to
    prevent hackers?
