    DescriptionThis work is a stunning compilation of the iconic artwork of Radiohead that has defined the singular aesthetic of one of the world's most innovative and popular contemporary bands, Radiohead. Stanley Donwood and the persistently enigmatic Dr Tchock are the elusive duo responsible for Radiohead's artwork. Containing almost all the paintings they have produced in the last decade, this book contains a cornucopia of never-before-seen artwork. From the startling irruption of memory into the present in the Kid A paintings, to the overwhelming information overload of Hail to the Thief's landscapes of conflict, "Dead Children Playing" presents some of the most iconic artwork of our time.

    Review quote
    "The publisher of this book wishes me to vouch for the writer of this book who is a friend of mine in order to utilise whatever celebrity kudos the writer of this quote, i.e., me, has left in order to advance the sales of this book. This has been duly done now in the form of this quote. I am sure the book is very good though I cannot remember what it is called or whether I have read it. I've read lots of his stuff and it's always good and I am in no way biased." - Thom Yorke, lead singer of Radiohead"
