So This is Permanence: Joy Division Lyrics and Notebooks

It is such a good looking thing, but if you are a fan of the band and its late lead singer, you'll probably be more keen to see the inside of So This is Permanence: Joy Division Lyrics and Notebooks, which is published by Faber Books.

The cover, inspired by the band's Still album wraps around 304 of lyrics and thoughts from Ian Curtis. The lyrics written by Curtis obviously take centre stage, but interspersed with those are previously unpublished facsimile pages of the frontman's notebooks, showing just how those words came into being.

The book is edited by Jon Savage (which in our experience tends to be a sign of quality) and has a foreword from Ian Curtis' wife Deborah Curtis. It is published on 16th October 2014 but available to order now, selling for £17 in hardback form.
