£350.00 linen backed.
The image is a detail from a 1981 work by Dutch sculptor Jan Van Munster - 'Energie-Piek ijs'. Note the typefaces (Garamond and Wim Crouwel's New Alphabet), reflecting what Peter Saville saw as the group's contrasting classical and modernist aspects. Card stock. Scarce and in excellent condition.
The image is a detail from 'Plus en Min' by Jan Van Munster (1981).
The single was re-released in 1988 to partner the release of the compilation album 'Substance' (see above), reflected by Peter Saville's unifying design for both.
The imagery for Technique and the single Round & Round were intense experiments in colour, with a distinct influence from Yves Klein and Andy Warhol's later period. Influenced by Acid House and the sounds of Ibiza (where it was partly recorded) the album went straight to the top of the UK charts.SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.
