In Stanley Donwood’s latest Taglibro issued Today, the Radiohead artist informs us that his Fleet Street Apocalypse has been issued.
Available as a lino print and screen print, the Fleet Street Apocalypse linocut is a companion piece of the London Views linocut which was previously used as artwork for Thom Yorke’s ‘The Eraser’ release. The new linocut (40 x 970 mm) shows the Royal Courts of Justice, the Cock Tavern, the Daily Express building, St Dunstan’s church, the Dundee Courier building, St Bride’s Church, a distand St Paul’s Cathedral, and the King and Keys pub, whilst a few desperate survivors attempt to escape a terrible flood that is sweeping along the Street.
The Linocut was created specifically to be printed at St Bride’s Institute, based on the photographs and observational drawings of Fleet Street. The prints were made on a cast-ron press from 1844. Get your prints over at Slowly Downward.
