Joy Division’s ‘Unknown Pleasures’ Album Cover Explained by Peter Saville

Former Factory Records graphic designer Peter Saville explains the origins behind the cover of Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures album as part of the build-up for New York’s Visualized Conference. A visual representation of the frequency of the signal from the first observed pulsar or pulsating star, Saville pulled the image from the Cambridge Encyclopedia of Astronomy. The ensuing usage of the cover has permeated pop culture – showing up as tattoos, clothing designs and animation segments.
