"Those photos are collected in a new book Joy Division (Rizzoli), which features dozens of previously unpublished pics of the band backstage and in rehearsals, plus shots of Curtis' journals and lyrics, and an introduction by author (and Joy Division super fan) Jay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
