Of Factory New York mail order catalogue; detail of contents
Of Factory New York was the formal New York wing of Factory Records. It was based in offices at 325 Spring Street Rm 233, New York, NY 10013, USA. Factory fans who know their posters will recall this as the venue for the White Columns 'Compact' installation (FAC 171). This mail order catalogue made available a wide selection of material, some of which, such as the posters, is incredibly rare today.
