Unknown Pleasures design explained by Peter Saville:

Joy Division’s cover artwork for Unknown Pleasures is one of the worlds most iconic designs, over the years it’s been warped, printed in many mediums, tattooed, collected, worshipped etc… Some people don’t even know where it comes from or who Joy Division were but love the image. I have two tees with this design on it, in fact I’m wearing one as I’m typing this blog post. A couple of days ago, VISUALIZED put together a video with Peter Saville explaining how the design came about.
