Wilson’s Last Project

Pennine Lancashire identity (detail) on black background
As the tributes following his untimely death made clear, Anthony H Wilson played an enormous role in the rejuvenation of North West England. Although he will rightly be remembered principally for his part in placing Manchester at the heart of popular culture, the final months of Wilson’s life were devoted, with his partner Yvette Livesey, to helping an area just to the north of the city. The project was also to be the last product of what has been one of the great creative partnerships, that between Wilson and designer Peter Saville. We talked to Saville about the project and heard from the people behind the creation of Pennine Lancashire.
