New Order - Power, Corruption and Lies (Album Cover Art) - Framed Print - 16" x 16"


Power, Corruption & Lies is the second studio album by English rock band New Order

The title of the album was chosen by Bernard Sumner from a 1981 conceptual art exhibition in Cologne, Germany. On the opening night of the exhibition the artist Gerhard Richter vandalised the exterior of the Kunsthalle by spray painting the text, "Power, Corruption, and Lies".

Peter Saville's design for the album had a colour-based code to represent the band's name and the title of the album. The cover is a reproduction of the painting "A Basket of Roses" by French artist Henri Fantin-Latour.

The cover was among the ten chosen by the Royal Mail for a set of "Classic Album Cover" postage stamps issued in January 2010.
