Using information design principles and graphical techniques, the 85+ recorded covers of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" is mapped in relation to the original recordings by the band. Although available information was limited, the graph is data rich in representing time since original recording, recording artist, release name/date and label. Various graphical techniques employed allowed for data to be accessed (number of recordings per year) while also creating an interesting aesthetic presentation.
The print on off-white heavy-weight art paper is a nod to the original graphic material produced for Joy Division by Peter Saville. The poster measures 70 x 99 cm and can be bought for $170 through PayPal.
