I'm obsessed with Joy Division, probably just like you. This is my tribute to the legendary Manchester group.
★★★★★"An in-depth well-researched insight into every track Joy Division recorded. A must for fans of their music."
The print chronologically compilesthe complete songwriting history of the legendaryManchesterpost-punk band. The artwork featuresWarsaw's first recordings in 1977, the An Ideal For Living EP, Unknown Pleasures, Closer, other EPs, singles, B-sides and up to the 'Ceremony' demo in 1980.
The artwork also includes key information about recording and release dates, the catalogue number of Factory Records, recording location, artwork/production credits and more.
Additionally, I have also includedIan Curtis' literary influences and favourite books, a key part to understand Ian's lyrical approach and a fascinating reading list. Some of the books included are Nikolai Gogol's Dead Souls, William Burroughs' Naked Lunch, Jean-Paul Sartre's Nausea, Hermann Hesse's Steppenwolf and much more.
A labour of love from a Joy Division devotee to another.
As featured on Peter Hook's Signature Collection Auction
In October 2021 Peter Hook exhibited and auctioned hundreds of Joy Division/New Order artefacts that belonged to his private collection. I am honoured to find out that my Joy Division print squeezed in there! The print belonged to Peter Hook and it was auctioned at this special event. The print sold for £320,money raised for UK charities. I gave a Joy Division print sample to Peter Hook back in 2019 and as a huge fan of Joy Division and New Order, it meant a lot to me knowing that he was glad with the print and with the "attention to detail". It's even more incredible knowing that the print was exhibited and auctioned next to true memorabilia of historic relevance that belonged to the man himself.
The New Order print compiles the group's complete songwriting history withFactory Recordsfrom 'Ceremony' (1981) to 'World in Motion' (1990), their last release with the iconic Manchester label.
In a similar way to the popular Joy Division songwriting history print, the New Order one offers an in-depth insight into every track New Order recorded during their time as leading band of Factory.
The artwork features iconic albums such as 'Movement', 'Power, Corruption & Lies' and 'Low-Life'; the 'Substance' compilation; New Order's 20 singles as well as the live videos released with Factory such as 'Taras Shevchenko' or 'Pumped Full of Drugs'.
The print also includes key information such as release dates, the Factory Records catalogue number, artwork/production credits as well as a colour scheme that evokes the original artwork per release.
My name is Alejandro De Luna, I am the one behind The Sense of Doubt, a one-man print studio where I design music history and cultural heritage wall art. My goal is to create well-researched, high-quality prints that attract immediate attention and that become talking points for years to come. I am deeply passionate about music history and this is reflected in my artworks.
Since 2010 I left my native Mexico City, travelled extensively and since then I've been living and working in Stockholm (Sweden), Hangzhou (China), London & Manchester (UK) and Berlin & Leipzig (Germany), where my print studio is currently based.
The prints are produced in small quantities and they are created and signed by myself. All sales are directly fulfilled from my home studio.
