Peter Saville has been one of the most influential graphic designers - responsible for many iconic album covers, especially for Factory Records - over the last three decades.  The design group Visualized have just released a video in which Saville explains the inspiration behind Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures album cover which used a page from the Cambridge Encyclopedia of Astronomy which showed “a comparative path demonstration of the frequency of a signal from a pulsating star.”
