From cult photograph fashion designer and lengthy-time Radiohead collaborator Stanley Donwood comes a starkly stunning photograph novel in regards to the finish of the arena.

A wild seascape, a far off island, a whole moon. Progressively the island grows closer till we land on a primeval desolate tract, wealthy in crops and enormous, odd beasts. Time passes and guy seems, with golf equipment, with spears, with crueller guns nonetheless – and issues don’t pass neatly for the desolate tract. Civilisation rises as towers of stone and steel and smoke, choking the undergrowth and the creatures that when moved via it. This isn’t a cheerful tale and it’ll now not have a cheerful finishing.

Working in his unique, monochromatic linocut taste, Stanley Donwood carves out a mesmerising, stark parable on environmentalism and the historical past of humankind.

Praise for Stanley Donwood:
