This is the 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 late 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 Records", as part of the story, has been given its own reference number - Fac 461 - making it a collectable item in its own right.
