In which the writings of the authors Thom Yorke and Stanley Donwood are gathered together.

This commonplace book includes faxes, notes, fledgling lyrics, sketches, lists of all kinds and scribblings towards nirvana, as were sent between the two authors during the period 1999 to 2000 during the creation of the Radiohead albums Kid A and Amnesiac.

This is a document of the creative process and a mirror to the fears, portents and fantasies invoked by the world as its citizens faced a brave new millennium.

A celebration of the Radiohead albums Kid A and Amnesiac, this is the first book of writing from Thom Yorke and Stanley Donwood. It is publishing alongside a full-colour book of artwork, Kid A Mnesia.

A must-have for all Radiohead fans.

Fear Stalks the Land! is a pocket-sized A-format book with French flaps. The cover is printed 5 colours on uncoated stock and debossed. The book is 176 pages long and features black and white text and more than forty black and white images by the authors.

Review

A celebration of the ideas, both written and drawn, that were behind the creation of the Radiohead albums Kid A and Amnesiac . . .  Includes faxes, notes, scribblings and sketches that musician Yorke and artist Donwood exchanged in the run-up to the creation of two iconic albums ― INDEPENDENT

The themes they [explore] (global warming, government surveillance, the corrosive power of the internet) are still strikingly relevant ― SCOTSMAN
