I actually had the “Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark” LP pictured in this spread (right). And shamefully, I don’t know where it went.

One of the first things I do when business goes well for a spell, is improve the Jamie Latendresse Media Library. In the last month this has chiefly been about the music wing of the library. However, just recently I realized that buying used books online is like crack cocaine. In addition to many others, I recently picked up a book I’d been wanting, “Designed by Peter Saville”. Saville was one of the original designers for Factory Records (Joy Division, New Order) and is a name I can remember from my record-listening adolescence, along with Malcom Garrett’s Assorted iMaGeS, the studio that did most of the early Duran Duran album art. This book was a real pleasure to leaf through. Makes me wonder if there’s a Malcom Garrett book out there. Hmmm.
