Description

Designed by Peter Saville

Peter Saville is arguably the most influential graphic designer of his generation. Best known for his seminal record covers for Joy Division and New Order and as the co-founder of legendary independent music label Factory Records, Saville has created designs for fashion, advertising, and art. The intensity and timelessness of his work has ensured his cult status for twenty-five years. His far-reaching designs and character prefigure popular culture: fresh and seemingly familiar, he continues to transform the commonplace into the desirable.
"Saville's method, then as now, lies in fixing on a style or look slightly ahead of popular taste. He achieves the sort of ambiguity and complexity of resonance more usually associated with art," writes Rick Poynor in his essay.
This first book on Saville's work chronicles his prolific career from 1978 to the present. It includes a comprehensive interview by Christopher Wilson as well as essays by style writer Peter York, music critics Paul Morley and Miranda Sawyer, and design critics Rick Poynor, Emily King, and Peter Hall.
Graphic designers, music lovers, and fashion followers everywhere will welcome this visually rich overview of Peter Saville's work and art.
