Stanley Donwood and the enigmatic Dr. Tchock are the elusive duo responsible for Radiohead's artwork. Featuring the apocalyptic scenes of the OK Computer album, the startling, sinister shadow of memory cast onto the present in the Kid A paintings, and the overwhelming information overload of Hail to the Thief's landscapes of conflict, Dead Children Playing presents some of the most iconic artwork of our time, and also highlights lesser-known paintings by the talented duo.
