As rob explains...
Originally I had the window in the third print just go to black and it really seemed too morbid (par for the course for Joy Division, I'm sure, but it felt a little trite). Donnegan suggested the other pulsar clouds/nebulae radiating from surrounding tenements which gave the series overall an unlikely positive but truthful outcome.
Probably the hardest project I've had to work on. Joy Division is so visually dominated by Peter Saville's work that my usual way of going about things felt improper (like an Iron Maiden cover without Eddie). I knew I had to keep things very simple and somewhat straightforward. My choice of using a nebula cloud (a specific one repeated which actually relates in a way to Ian Curtis and Manchester) was a tip of the hat to Saville's Unknown Pleasures cover (not the same pulsar, but a pulsar nonetheless).
