Foruli packages Peter Hook autobiography box sets

Specialist publisher Foruli has created the packaging and graphics for limited-edition box sets of the autobiography of Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook.

The book, called The Haçienda: How Not To Run A Club, gives Hook’s account of the birth and decline of The Haçienda nightclub, which was owned by New Order and Factory Records.

The graphics and packaging were designed in-house by the Foruli design team, who specialise in producing limited-edition publications. The box sets come in three editions, ranging in quantity from a 400-edition run to just two copies of the Ultimate edition which includes a bass guitar featuring a design inspired by Ben Kelly’s Haçienda interior.

The book, which was launched yesterday at Wayne Hemingway’s Vintage at Goodwood festival, features packaging with a bold colour palette inspired by the Haçienda’s branding, a laser-engraved Perspex slipcase, a die-cut album sleeve and an off-set lithograph print.

Hook says, ‘The idea of doing a limited-edition book came as a shock at first, but when you see how beautiful the packages are and the obvious respect that has gone into creating them, they really evoke and bring to life the original graphic identity and ethos of the Haçienda.’
