Joy Division at Strawberry Studios - Photography by Paul Slattery: New Book of Iconic Photos Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of "Unknown Pleasures"

Joy Divison at Strawberry Studios - Photography by Paul Slattery
To mark the fortieth anniversary of Joy Division’s seminal album "Unknown Pleasures", Paul Slattery, the celebrated rock photographer (and my Retro Man Blog colleague...) travels back in time to Saturday 28th July 1979. His new book, published by Legends Publishing, 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. This is the first time all the images have been published in one volume. Paul also 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 come with three postcard sized prints and an exclusive Joy Division badge – while stocks last and not sold separately. Please note, the official book launch will take place on Saturday 27th at the Stockport Museum and books will be posted out on or around that date. Overseas purchases are possible but extra postage charges will apply – the publisher will advise details after an order has been made. You can order the book directly from Legends Publishing here.
