Peter Saville: Estate

The legendary cover of the New Order single Blue Monday (1983) and, for example, the cover of the Joy Division album Unknown Pleasures (1979), were to bring the Manchester graphic designer Peter Saville (born 1955) worldwide renown. Using a reduced, Modernist style Peter Saville has made key innovations in the field of visual communications, and in recent times he has had a profound effect on the interplay between art, design and advertising.

"Peter Saville Estate" is not a conventional account of Saville's professional practice, but collects together work, reference material and ephemera from his archive to form an illuminating and highly personal topography of the life and working methods of one of the most influential designers of the last 30 years.
