      Hulme, Manchester: Factory Records, 1979. Evocative original poster advertising a performance by Joy Division at the Factory in Hulme, Manchester, on July 13, 1979.

Accompanying the poster is a typed letter signed, dated 2008, with detailed provenance, by the poster's designer Jon Savage. Savage notes that the performance was recorded, and appears in part on the recent "Heart and Soul" box set, and in full on the latest Warner Brothers reissues of "Unknown Pleasures." Savage also notes that only a few hundred poster were printed up, and nearly all of them were fly-posted around Manchester. The poster has been reproduced in Savage's book, "England's Dreaming: Sex Pistols and Punk Rock," and in Rob Gretton's memoir, "Top Class Manager." 17 x 25 inches, rolled. Fine.

Urlich Middeldorf, direttore dell'Istituto d'Arte di Chicago e del Kunsthistorisches Institut di Firenze e di un Comitato Consultivo Internazionale, formato dai più validi studiosi e dai maggiori specialisti internazionali nel campo del disegno cui si affidò la completa responsabilità della definizione del piano dell'opera e della scelta dei collaboratori.

        Die Veränderung des Strassenraums durch das Auto

      Pädagogische Hochschule Berlin, Berlin 1979 - Oblong Folio (13 1/2 x 20"). 98pp. Original maquette with black binders tape at top edge, photograph pasted to cover and black lettering on cover. This work is an attempt to provide an overview and documentation of the changes of the street as a defined space due to the invention of the car and its use for transportation. The report, a student project, was originally submitted by two students at the Pedagogic College Berlin in the winter semester 1978/79. It investigates the change of the streetscape in Berlin from the early 20th century through the late 1970s, with projections of changes into the 1990s. The report is divided into four parts: 1. the general development of the city and traffic in the BRD, 2. the specific situation in Berlin, 3. the changes of the streetscape in Berlin, and 4. evaluation of the investigation with outlooks on contemporary traffic and its future as well as the change of consciousness in the city, tools for improvement and proposals for the future. The report is profusely illustrated with original drawings, one three part overlay, photographs, color photomontages, newspaper clippings of text, photographs and city maps. Part three, illustrating the changes in the Berlin cityscape, consists mainly of photographs, montages and drawings pasted to heavy stock black paper, at times two glued back to back, with manual calligraphy describing the presentation. The text in the three other parts of the report is presented on typed pages pasted to heavy white paper stock, mostly two 11 1/2 x 8 1/4" pages next to each other on front and on verso. Contains one handwritten, penciled commentary, presumably that of a teacher, questioning the presented data on page 5. Text in German. Very light wear along edges. Binding and interior in overall very good condition. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Faro, Sweden Ingmar Bergman 1979. Ingmar Bergman: Faro, Sweden, 1979. FANNY AND ALEXANDER - A FILM FOR TELEVISION, by INGMAR BERGMAN. Translated (into English) by Alan Blair. ORIGINAL DRAFT SCREENPLAY for what BERGMAN INTENDED TO BE a FIVE HOUR, FOUR PART FILM for TELEVISION. The Draft is dated Faro (Sweden), 1979. Plastic Spiral Bound Screenplay, green paper and clear plastic covers, 8.25x11.75 inches, mimeographed or photocopied typescript, 235 pages plus 3 prelim pages (Title Page, Characters), pages printed on one side only. VERY GOOD condition, light toning and soiling to the page edges, overall tight, bright, clean and unmarked. A very nice copy. The full breadth and beauty of Ingmar Bergman's incredible film is only fully realized in the format he originally intended, the four part, five hour television film. This 1979 screenplay draft was the embodiment of that vision. However, Bergman was convinced to make a drastically cut version (3 hours versus 5 hours) for limited release in Europe in late 1982 so that the film would qualify for the Academy Awards. After the spliced and diced film finished its very limited European release, and after it won 4 academy awards (it was nominated for six), a 5 hour theatrical film was given limited European theatrical release. That five hour film was basically a spliced together version of the intended four part, five hour television film. Finally, also in 1983, the full four part, five hour television film was shown in Sweden (Fanny och Alexander) in the form Bergman originally intended. I do not believe that Bergman's preferred 5 hour version was ever filmed in English. His original intent was clearly to have the four part, five hour telefilm made and shown on television in both Sweden and the United States. Thus this 1979 English translated draft screenplay. But instead only the drastically shortened film version was ever released theatrically in the United States. That film was released in 1983, four years after this 1979 screenplay for television was looking for U.S. producers. This Original 1979 Draft Screenplay for the Full Four Part, Five Hour Television Film was sent to Super Agent Paul Kohner (long time agent for Ingmar Bergman and for many of Bergman's film stars). Paul Kohner's ownership label is on the title page, with his early phone number CRESTVIEW 1-5165. SCARCE. This 1979 INGMAR BERGMAN written SCREENPLAY for his original vision of a Five Hour, Four Part FILM for TELEVISION, is the only copy I have, and it is the only copy I have ever seen. Very Good
