Was browsing through book-section when i came upon this title:
http://www.joydiv.org/bk67.htm
Sub-text states,they are seldomly seen,deducing that the print # maybe lower as stated.
Long story short,after reading that, i browsed german ebay shortly after & BANG....one showed up,#710!
Doesn't claim jdc is incorrect,unless we ever find a copy  that comes close to # 2500?
Here's the link to the german sale,have placed a bid but i just spent/concentrated cash on first uk up cds and was blessed,that friends secured me the last k.cummins coffee-table book available (£50,christ...should've grabbed it shortly after release.....instead of going for the german version!) !
Crazy,did any other country release the book?
Anyway,here is the link if anyone is interested:

This is an early version of what became the "A History In Cuttings" book(s) and it's featured here, 4th entry from the top; http://www.joydiv.org/bk13.htm

No problem, these early pre-AHIC books with different titles are a bit confusing!

  1. Our good fellow member "benno",a humble man....so humble,that without 'warning me',just sent me a copy of his self-published lyric booklet he produced in 1982,after meticiously going through jd's songs he had access to.back in the day he made these for friends and fans he knew and printed about 30 (ca.) and passed them on to all that were interested.he sat down for hours and hours,deciphering word for word and penned them down to the best of his knowledge.....a real labor of love that carries the spirit of the time.this came to my attention by accident as it started with pm's concerning jd pictures and benno offered me a high quality print by a mate of his (https://web1.secure-secure.co.uk/mad4ink.co.uk/) of a picture of ian he used to own (go check him out,love the poster he made out of it!).this site archives all and everything jd and lists even books/leaflets with lower numbers than "30";i believe this one deserves the same attention....it is homemade as many others but that is never the issue here,it would just be a great addition to the archive/book-segment:here are some pics of the booklet to best of my ability....sorry for the quality:
  2. Pics will follow,when i worked out how to upload them from my folder!

Thanks for providing some pictures. I actually got a copy of your "Welcome To The Atrocity Exhibition" booklet years ago, benno. I can't recall if I received it from you, or if I got a used copy from someone else, probably the latter. I'm sure Marko agrees that we should add it to the site.

Well that's a definite Wow! from me. Other than the few that went to friends, most were give-aways - I occasionally sold and swapped tapes in the Underground Market in Manchester, and gave the booklet to JD fans. So if you were resident in Manchester around 82/83, you could have got one from me. However you came by it, I'm amazed - small world.

Cheers Dominic, the credit goes to you for your tenacity - if you want something done, get Domski on the job. Thanks to you all for the community, especially at this time.

This looks excellent!

I'm a very big fan of the various fanzines / home-made publications that were made about the band (Factsheet, Standard, A History In Cuttings, Last Orders, Paradise etc.).  I always love seeing pictures of these 'zines and there are a couple of threads on this forum where members have posted pictures (Max, who co-edited 'Standard', posted a few great photos a year or so ago).

This looks a very worth addition to the above esteemed group.

Thanks for sharing the pictures!  It is very much appreciated.

I've just sent Marko a scan of my copy which he'll add to the site very soon I'm sure. Wish I could remember exactly when and how I obtained it, but that's lost in the mists of time it seems. But I do remember I was happy to get it back then, very nice effort!

Big thanks to erik and marko for adding bennos labour of love he self published back in '82 and was pleasantly surprised that erik even had a copy which is all the more mystifying as only 30 were made and hard to come by.....and props to the perfect picture you posted as my photographic skills are limited and yours came out really popping.thanks to all involved,of course benno (without we wouldn't be having this conversation) to whom we owe so much for all his work and effort he has lately put into this site (making so much access to JD and NO music and tv or other visual recordings) although he 'just joined' a couple of months ago.
Now it has come full circle and glenn is now enshrined in JD(C)'s lore.i am really chuffed to have seen this happening.
Hope this didn't sound a little 'over the top' but i am really 'glücklich' for benno that 38 years ago he poured over every word,painstakingly penning them,used the simple tech of back in the day to create a little booklet with adding a little artwork in the spirit of punk aesthetics.he made sure he printed enough for his mates to go around....free of charge,he was paid by the smiling eyes and i hope a pint or two.
So,again forgive me my long paragraph of a semi speech for an oscar award but hey.....i was once told to never be ashamed to share your true thoughts.
"this is not a love song!"......just a little hommage!
Best wishes-dominic/domski/dmxi-
