Joy Division Hardcover – October 26, 2010
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

"These photographs—all carefully constructed whites and blacks—are collected in 'Joy Division' (Rizzoli, 208 pages, $45). The book is a bleak and gorgeous counterpoint to the band's atmospheric sound. In the photo above, Curtis and Sumner pose in their rehearsal space in a dilapidated warehouse." ~Wall Street Journal
"Those photos are collected in a new book Joy Division (Rizzoli), which features dozens of previously unpublished pics of the band backstage and in rehearsals, plus shots of Curtis' journals and lyrics, and an introduction by author (and Joy Division super fan) Jay McInerney" ~SPIN
"The definitive look at one of the most iconic rock bands of all time" ~Hypebeast.com
"Cummins archive of Joy Division photographs, coupled with rare ephemera (including Ian Curtis’ own notebooks), forms the definitive monograph Joy Division. From composed shots in T.J. Davidson’s rehearsal room to raw live performance photos, and even portraits on the streets of Manchester, Cummins view of the band is broad and unfettered." ~Selectism.com
"Kevin Cummins, who took many iconic photos of the band, has compiled his shots of the Salford lads in Joy Division (Rizzoli, October)... Most powerful are Cummins's haunting portraits of future suicide Ian Curtis performing live, which practically vibrate with the singer's demonic intensity." ~Book Forum
