FAC 461 - Factory Works: The Visual Legacy of Factory Records 
Several years in the making, this book, by Matthew Robertson, is the first and definitive overview of the artwork of the seminal Manchester-based Factory label, covering its iconic record sleeves, posters, ephemera, venues and packaging. After a foreword by the founder of Factory, Tony Wilson, an introductory essay discusses the label's role in bringing design to the mainstream. Thereafter, the book is organized as a generously illustrated catalogue, arranged by the famous Factory reference system. Factory Works, as part of the story, has been given its own reference number - FAC 461 - making it a collectable item in its own right.
