The Face, nº 39, July 1983

“It was thought tha New Order were not recognisable enough to the general public to act as cover stars, so a different approach was needed. Brody therefore gave the photo of New Order’s Stephen Morris a radical crop, helped further by the use of italic emphasis. This break with convention was subsequently chosen as ‘Cover of the Year’ in the 1983 Magazine Publishing Awards.”
