Album Cover of The Month (12" Version)

NEW ORDER: Blue Monday (12" single)
Factory Records was (and still is) one of the most noted labels when it comes to 80's Alternative Dance Music. Their roster consisted of Joy Division, Happy Mondays and of course New Order to name a few...

Blue Monday was (and still is) their biggest release to date. Not only was it a big hit musically but the cover art was a big hit as well, mimicking the floppy-disk (at the time) ... A great choice for a group with new direction. Peter Saville was the creator of this design that influenced a great many designers (including me)...
