“Right up until 1995, SEVEN years after graduating, the only ‘hardware’ I possessed was a cutting mat, a scalpel, a packet of spare blades a tin of glue and a metal type scale/ruler. This meant that all Oasis artwork up to that point and including the LP ‘Definitely Maybe’ was pasted up by hand onto boards in my bedroom in Wigan before being sent to the printers.”

Excerpted from What’s a computer? by Brian Cannon, a great read on how designers produced artwork in the days before computers.
