Links with Books

Throughout the project we looked at a lot of books to help us with inspiration and ideas as well as gain a better understanding of music videos and of Joy Division.

The first book we looked at and probably the book that gave us the most knowledge was Saul Austerlitz's Money For Nothing. This book contains "A History of the Music Video from the Beatles to the White Stripes". Although the book was general in its approach to music video, they was still sections with relevance to Anton Corbijn and Joy Division, which were great help during preliminary research into the band and its style. The book was also a great help when researching music video in general.

The second book that we looked at was Deborah Curtis's Touching from the distance. This is a in-depth biographical account of the legendary lead singer of Joy Division, written by his widow. The book gave us a great insight into the band again and the singer, because we were in a way basing our character on Ian it was a great way of understanding the man himself.

The last book we looked at is Kevin Cummin's "Joy Division". The book is a heavily illustrated celebration of Joy Division. We used the book as source of inspiration for the style of all three components of the promotional package.
