'Factory Records: The Complete Graphic Album' By Matthew Robertson
Foreword by Tony Wilson

"Central Saint Martins is delighted to host the UK launch of 'Factory Records: The Complete Graphic Album', the definitive guide to the diverse and vital design legacy of the Manchester-based label.

After a foreword from the man most closely associated with Factory, Tony Wilson, and an introduction that explores the label's role in bringing design into the mainstream, the book is organized as a more or less chronological catalogue. Every item with one of the famous Factory inventory numbers is illustrated or listed, including album sleeves, singles, special editions, flyers, posters, stationery and architectural projects."
