"The publisher of this book wishes me to vouch for the writer of this book who is a friend of mine in order to utilise whatever celebrity kudos the writer of this quote, i.e., me, has left in order to advance the sales of this book. This has been duly done now in the form of this quote. I am sure the book is very good though I cannot remember what it is called or whether I have read it. I've read lots of his stuff and it's always good and I am in no way biased." - Thom Yorke, lead singer of Radiohead"

Anyhow, for this price, it's a good book to flip through, although your friends might give you some funny looks when they see the title.
There are some interesting commentaries, especially by Stanley Donwood, about the works - not the technique used but rather the sundry impressions that became art. This is art of the now and very well done. Grady Harp, January 11
You will find in the text an insight into the inspiration sources and creative methods of Stanley Donwood and Dr. Tchock. The quality of the print is good, and the hard cover gives it a nice durable feel.
This book covers the artwork from OK-Computer to Hail to the Thief.
Some cut outs of misc stuff, and text.
Get this book if you want more 'KID A'.
Get the Red Maze if you want' In Rainbows' artwork.
Get both for 'Amnesiac' stuff.
Simple as that.
