Still waiting on that In Rainbows album cover

by Jonathan on October 14, 2007

We’re still not entirely convinced that what we posted the other day is the official cover for In Rainbows. We’ve received a lot of email that pointed out some typography and design differences with what is shown in the discbox image. Also, it doesn’t help that Stanley told us that the official artwork is not online yet:

not yet. maybe soonish, maybe not. going to ‘think about it’

Okay. In the meantime, if you want to some cool fan-made album covers, check out this site.

(thanks to Rex and Peter)

Griffin is pleased to announce that its A/W 07 Collection will include artwork designed by Stanley Donwood. This collection will include art from Thom Yorke’s The Eraser, also known as London Views. The collection is up for sale now on the Griffin website.

In an interview with Griffin, we learned that Griffin has only produced a small number of tees and hoodies. When they are gone, they are gone.

But wait! The kind people at Griffin are also fans of greenplastic.com and have offered for a limited time only (LIKE A WEEK OR TWO), a generous discount for any fan who would like to purchase one of these quality shirts or hoodies. What’s the catch? You have to figure out the code below. Easy enough, right?

When you have the code, enter it in at the checkout stage of the online shop and you will automatically receive 15% off.

The Independent has listed Stanley Donwood as one of the “best illustrators” in British media today.

Stanley Donwood

More of a fine artist than illustrator, Stanley Donwood, 38, created the artwork for Radiohead’s album sleeves. The man himself is not one naturally drawn to the limelight. For years, the only way to contact him was to fax his local pub in Bath, from whence any communication would be forwarded to him. Much of Donwood’s work delights in rediscovering antiquated processes. A recent series of images, London Views, created a panorama of the capital out of 14 pieces of hand-cut linoleum, printed on a Victorian printing press. His latest work, If You Lived Here You’d Be Home By Now (recently shown at the Lazarides Gallery in London’s Soho), comprises a series of darkly compelling etchings that used the century-old photogravure technique.
