Peter Saville | Basic Knots

Peter Saville
Basic Knots
London, UK: Furnished Space, 2014
50 x 70 cm.
Edition of 75

A screenprinted cotton tea towel by artist and designer Peter Seville, best known for his work as the visual director of Factory records, and his iconic covers for Joy Division and New Order.

The work was commissioned by Tamsin Clark as part of Sex Shop for Folkestone Fringe 2014, where it remains on display until Saturday October 4th, from 11 to 5 pm on weekends at 5 Rendezvous Street, Folkestone, Kent, CT20 IEY. The design of the towel references the classic seaside souvenir fisherman's knot motif, but replaces them with knots commonly used in bondage.

Available for £30 from the publisher, here
