The So Album Cover

31 years ago today, 19 May 1986, Peter’s fifth studio album So was released.

The cover features a now iconic photograph of Peter, taken by Trevor Key. The album cover was designed by Peter Saville, with typography by Brett Wickens.

Here’s a chance to revisit Peter Saville’s memories of how the So album cover came into being.
