Stanley Donwood has been hard at work of late, firstly on the artwork for Radiohead’s eagerly awaited In Rainbows box set, and also on his new book Dead Children Playing, which is published this week.

The book, described on the cover as “A Picture book by Stanley Donwood & Dr Tchock” (widely assumed to be a pseudonym for Thom Yorke), is an extension of Donwood’s show at Barcelona’s Iquapop Gallery last year. Its imagery will be familiar to all Radiohead fans, with artwork for the band stretching back over a decade included, alongside other scribblings, paintings and sketches made along the way. As usual with Donwood, it’s all lovely, if melancholic, stuff.

Passion Pictures MD, Andrew Ruhemann has strenuously denied that his production company “ripped off” LA illustrators Kozyndan over Play-Doh, the new Sony Bravia commercial. In a phone call to Creative Review today, Ruhemann says of the Kozyndan work (detail shown above), “Nobody here ever saw it. It never formed part of the reference material and no-one from Gorgeous or Fallon showed it to us.”

Seductive stuff

Seduced exhibition catalogue cover
Kerr|Noble has created this rather beautiful catalogue to accompany the current Barbican exhibition, Seduced; Art & Sex from Antiquity to Now. As its title suggests, the show includes artworks stretching back 2000 years, all exploring the most enduring of artistic subjects. Kerr|Noble’s book has a suitably fleshy coloured cover, and the use of Swashbuckle font adds an elegant flourish to the text. Swashbuckle is also used by the designers in the exhibition graphics.
