In death as in life: Peter Saville and Ben Kelly's memorial to their friend and collaborator Anthony H Wilson is three years late, but well worth the wait.
Factory Records founder Anthony H. Wilson died in August 2007.
Just over three years later (no client rushing them), a memorial headstone designed collaboratively by Wilson's long-term associates Peter Saville (Joy Division cover designer) and Ben Kelly with Paul Barnes and Matt Robertson, was unveiled in The Southern Cemetery in Chorlton-Cum-Hardy, Manchester.
The black granite headstone carries a quote chosen by Wilson's family from The Manchester Man, the 1876 novel by Mrs G Linnaeus Banks (aka Isabella Varley Banks), the story of one Jabez Clegg and his life in Victorian Manchester.
The quote is set in Rotis by typographer Matt Robertson.
If you outlive me friends, I'll have 'Relentless noticer/Knowledge synthesizer' on my black granite please. No punctuation. Konsens Regular.
