i’ve always loved this band, along with new order, so when i saw the documentary by grant gee today, i was very excited. these are my favorite album covers. the first is a photograph by kevin cummins for the 2008 ‘the best of’ release. the unknown pleasures cover was made by graphic designer peter saville. the image comes from an edition of the cambridge encyclopedia of astronomy and was originally drawn with black lines on a white background. it represents exactly 100 successive pulses from the first pulsar discovered, which is a neutron star that emits a beam of electromagnetic radiation in the form of radio waves.
