This 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. At Factory, musicians and designers commingled creatively, with innovators such as Peter Saville, Den Kelly, Mark Farrow, 8VO, and Barbara Kruger elevating album covers to a new art form. 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.
