London Official – Stanley Donwood, London, 2012

Artist: Stanley Donwood
Type: Gig Poster
Print: Silkscreen
Size: 18 9/10 x 25 1/5
Event Date: 10.8-9.2012
Venue: Greenwich Peninsula - London, England
Signed, embossed, and numbered in an edition of 188

Seeing Radiohead in London should be a bucket list item for any fan. And Stanley Donwood, the artist-in-residence for the band, doing the poster for said show is about as official as you can get.

While all the Donwood posters for the North American tour are monochromatic on a field of black, this London poster is uncharacteristically colorful and printed on high-quality white paper. I like how “England” is printed in large, thick letters here.

These were printed in an edition of 188, a pretty large edition for Stanley but average for gig posters in general. Regardless of the larger edition, these do not come up for sale often; and I would image that if one does it’ll fetch well into the hundreds of dollars.
