Exhibition of new wave record sleeves (for amongst others Buzzcocks, Joy Division and Elvis Costello) and related ephemera, such as a bendy Stiff records pencil and a F**k Art Let's Dance t-shirt. Curated by Bryan Biggs and Chris Kennedy (the Bluecoat gallery team), the show included designs by Barney Bubbles, Malcolm Garrett (Assorted Images), Bob Last (Fast), Al McDowell (Rockin’ Russian), Al Morton (Stiff) and Peter Saville (Factory), and toured to ICA in London, the Melkweg in Amsterdam, and Southampton Art Gallery, for which Malcolm Garrett designed this poster.
