Issue 56

In his own words, Stanley Donwood is not many things: a clear thinker, a forward planner, a smart operator, an astute businessperson, a public speaker, or a responsible parent. He is, however, the art director (for want of a better title) of the well-known musical group called Radiohead, a gracious host, a talented, hilarious wordsmith, and, as we’ve recently discovered, a wonderful guest editor. 

In his carefully curated issue, Stanley walks us through his seminal Radiohead cover art (which somehow involves cycling through the Alps with the band and having a gun poked in his grill after winning a Grammy), we chat to legendary British political art collective kennardphillipps, spend time in Chris Hopewell’s print shop in Bristol, unearth previously unpublished shorts stories from Stanley himself, and much, much more.
