Initially asked to contribute memorabilia for the cover design, a key high-res scan landed in Andrew Prinz’s possession years prior. Said scan is Hannett’s Birdseye view floorplan drawing of equipment, effects, and gear used for Joy Division’s ‘Closer.’
Hannett tucked the drawing inside the LP sleeve as a premium in a copy of ‘Closer’ to the 100,000th Factory Records customer. Not quite Willy Wonka, but Martin Hannett sure did have swag.
