Whilst these records were being conceived, rehearsed, recorded and produced, Thom Yorke and Stanley Donwood made hundreds of images. These ranged from obsessive, insomniac scrawls in biro to six-foot-square painted canvases, from scissors-and-glue collages to immense digital landscapes. They utilised every medium they could find, from sticks and knives to the emerging digital technologies.

The work chronicles their obsessions at the time: minotaurs, genocide, maps, globalisation, monsters, pylons, dams, volcanoes, locusts, lightning, helicopters, Hiroshima, show homes and ring roads. What emerges is a deeply strange portrait of the years at the commencement of this century. A time that seems an age ago – but so much remains the same.

KID A MNESIA is a 240 x 189mm hardback with a paper case cover printed in 5 colours on uncoated stock with debossing on the front and spine and a specially designed, peelable sticker. Inside, the endpapers are dyed black uncoated paper. 360 pages long and heavily illustrated throughout, the internal pages are printed in 5 colours on coated Italian paper with one 40-page section at the midpoint on heavy uncoated paper. A paper gatefold section ends the book folding out to reveal a spread of 3 images each side.

The book showcases more than 300 colour artworks. In addition, it features a dialogue between Thom Yorke and Stanley Donwood about the creative process and a specially commissioned essay, Kid Alphabet, by Gareth Evans about Radiohead’s body of work.

All new and existing orders of the book placed from here will automatically be entered into a lottery to randomly receive first edition copies signed by Thom and Stanley.
