Stanley Donwood: still quite good

He’s been making record sleeves for yonks and is something of a ‘known’ linocut artist and I know not everyone likes Radiohead and god knows that includes me at times (and them too, you imagine) but jeez louise, Stanley Donwood is an absolutely brilliant printer. Just wanted to get that off my chest.

Above is a cut he did for Paul Kingsnorth’s Dark Mountain project from earlier this year. A moment to reflect, if you like.

I think it’s a two-colour, one plate cut, but i’m never 100% sure with Donwood as he tends to use like, 17 different blacks in one piece. Still, brilliant. Still brilliant.
