An Ideal for Living: An History of Joy Division
By Mark Johnson
From their mythical origins as The Stiff Kittens to their programmed future as New Order …
First published in 1984 and long considered the best-written work on the birth and development of Joy Division, this book is a necessary item for any fan or curious collector. Presented as a quasi-diary of daily occurrences and small details, An Ideal for Living aims to recreate the atmosphere surrounding the nascent band and its eventual demise.
Included in this edition are a series of black and white photographs, taken in concert and in private. There isn’t a more intimate Joy Division experience out there!
