Synopsis | Podcasts | Order from Thames & Hudson
Between 1978 and 1992, Factory was one of the most important record labels in Britain. It launched the careers of
New Order and the Happy Mondays, to name but a few; it opened the legendary
club and Dry bar
and it introduced to music the concept of high-quality, cutting-edge design.
The visual languages developed alongside the music, by designers such as Peter Saville,
Central Station Design
are still widely recognized and imitated today.
Factory Records The Complete Graphic Album documents the label’s entire visual legacy.
