As reported earlier, the picture book by Stanley Donwood & Dr. Tchock (Thom Yorke) ‘Dead Children Playing’ was scheduled for a second release this month. The book features artwork from roughly the past 10 years (1996 – 2006) used for Radiohead’s albums and Thom Yorke’s ‘The Eraser’.
The first edition of ‘Dead Children Playing’ was released last year to accompany Stanley Donwood & Dr. Tchock’s exhibition in Spain and quickly sold out. Publisher Verso has issued the second edition, with a couple of pages of text added to each ‘era of artwork’ and a different cover: ‘Manhattan’ from the ‘Hail to the Thief’ series.
The book is again released as hardcover which holds 80 pages. For those who have waited and didn’t get the first edition, actually have a better price with this version from Verso as the price is much more interesting, with retail prices set at US$15.95 / £9.99 / CAN$20. ‘Dead Children Playing: A Picture Book’ is probably even cheaper when ordered at Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk.
