To mark the fortieth anniversary of Joy Division’s seminal album Unknown Pleasures, celebrated rock photographer, Paul Slattery, travelled back in time to Saturday 28 July 1979.
His book features the iconic images of the photo session of the band which he took on the streets around Strawberry Studios in Stockport, where the band recorded the album, and later that day at the legendary Stuff The Superstars gig at The Mayflower Club in Gorton.
It also includes photos taken at the Electric Ballroom 26 October 1979.
This limited edition hardback is the first time all the images have been published in one volume. Paul shares his memories of the day, and the photographic locations, along with some never-before-published images.
The limited edition author-signed copies of the book came with three postcard sized prints and an exclusive Joy Division badge – while stocks last and not sold separately.
The official book launch was at the Stockport Museum Saturday July 27 2019.
