This special collector's edition of Joy Division: Juvenes was limited to just 100 copies and same with an 8 x 10-inch photographic print, hand-signed by Kevin Cummins. Taken during a Joy Division rehearsal session on 19 August 1979, the stunning photograph of Ian Curtis is not featured in the book.
Housed in a cloth-bound, foil stamped clamshell box, the print was accompanied by a signed and numbered certificate and a signed copy of the book itself, wrapped in a special edition jacket exclusive to this set. Beautifully produced, it is the ultimate collector's edition of Juvenes, the definitive book of Kevin Cummins' iconic photographs of Joy Division.
‘Whenever I picture Joy Division, it’s through Kevin Cummins’ camera lens. Never before or since has one photographer captured a band’s story so well.’
‘I first saw Kevin Cummins’ photographs of Joy Division when I was a music-obsessed teenager. The stark black and white shots captured perfectly the austere and serious nature of the music. Look at this book and dream a new future into being. God knows we need one.’
The Deluxe Edition of Joy Division - Juvenes (9781788403627) was published by Cassell, imprint of Octopus Book Group via Special Edition Books on the 7th October 2021.
