    I would like to have a complete set of the stickers. I prefer original issue, but a reprint is fine. Thanks.

        Interesting story about the stickers.. The original copy I had of this was bought off a friend early 1980 and only had 2 of the stickers.. Later that year I was in Manchester and plucked up the courage to call round at (i think) the then Palatine Road address.. I'd assumed it to be an office of some such but turned out to be someone's flat (Alan Erasmus?).. Whoever it was I think I woke them up and i sheepishly asked if they had any sets of the stickers left over by any chance.. He opened a wardrobe and there lurking at the bottom was a huge stackload of the sticker sets of which he almost reluctantly handed over 1 copy.. along with a copy of the shareholders guide and analysis which I also plucked up the courage to ask for... He never said a word to me though so I quickly retreated... Thankfully still have that set of stickers (and the shareholders guide).. Not sure what happened to the 2 original loose stickers I had though.. Also was never aware of the 5th sticker at the time (Damn!) Plus always wondered what became of all those left over sticker sets!

          A treasured possession bought from a record fair in the late 80s with, alas, no stickers. The music comes off second best to Peter Saville's iconic sleeve design and in a very Factory kind of way it's the graphics which are setting the tone.

            I am looking for the Joy Division/The Durutti Column 7 inch only. Let me know if you have one for sale.
