You can now buy a Joy Division Christmas card from Oxfam

Artist Peter Saville has teamed up with the charity for the project

The album art of Joy Division‘s classic 1979 debut ‘Unknown Pleasures’ will form the basis of a Christmas card this year at Oxfam.

Artist Peter Saville, who designed the original sleeve, has donated a gold-tinged version of the artwork to be sold for charity this festive season. It goes on sale on October 17. See the card in the photo beneath.

Other artists to contribute cards this year include Grayson Perry (whose card is called ‘Inoffensive Design’), Raqib Shaw, Michael Craig-Martin, Adam Dant, and Bob and Roberta Smith.


Perry says he agreed to be involved with the project “because Oxfam is like another word for good”.

Meanwhile, US department store Barneys is selling Joy Division T-shirts for $225 (£171).
