Love Will Tear Us Apart Again Poster

I just came across this poster design that visualizes the cover versions of Joy Divisions "Love wll tear us apart". Very cool. Amazing how many times the song has been covered by other artisits.

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 (eg. radiating dots) allowed for data to be accessed (number of recordings per year) while also creating an interesting aesthetic presentation.
