Arkitip has a new video interview with Peter Saville, the great Mancunian designer. It shows the mock-ups of Unknown Pleasures, the first Joy Division album, where the famous diagram of an image of a pulsar, taken from the Cambridge Encyclopedia of Astronomy, had originally been rendered as a three-dimensional model (see right). Moreover, the a couple of versions of the said model still exist.
