Stanley Donwood Tweets and The King Of Limbs Japanese physical copy revealed

It seems as if Stanley Donwood has been giving us a lot of information lately, here is his latest message posted to his Twitter account:

“just decided today to start again on the divided woods print i was doing. a y mark an m dot and a c inconsistency. 100 prints all badbadbad”

Update # 2 Stanley also made a post on his blog today:

“Had a major fail in the studio. The print being produced, Divided Woods, was looking good when we sampled it, and against the wise advice of what is probably the best screenprinting company in the UK, we decided to go ahead and attempt to print an edition of a hundred using four inks and a varnish. This took a while, during which time I was also involved in other, newspaper-related matters. Perhaps it was a lack of attention. Perhaps it was the poor lighting. Perhaps it was tiredness. But. But the entire edition, I have reluctantly and gloomily concluded, is NO GOOD.
Due to inconsistency of the cyan print, a little pinhole of magenta and a really fucking annoying overlooked yellow registration mark, the somewhat depressing fact is… we got to do it again. But I do try to look on the happy side; the studio is no longer so unbelievably cold that it makes you want to shout in pain. Hooray.
Anyway, fuck it. Do it again, better.
Also we have got ten each of the Bad Woods editions that Lazarides printed for the Work on Paper show to sell through the Manufactory. By the way. ”

Notice he mentions other Newspaper related matters.  We are just 4 weeks away from the Newspaper Edition of The King Of Limbs being shipped, so I am guessing this is not the newspaper he is referring to…  Will there be another edition of The Universal Sigh released?  Perhaps under a different name?

 

I was also sent this photo of the physical copy of The King Of Limbs from Japan and it looks as if their version includes a booklet though I am not sure what it contains.  I am guessing the lyrics.

 

Japanese The King Of Limbs release : April 6th
Japanese The Universal Sigh event : April 9th

 

Check out this article by James over at www.fakeplastictunes.com titled ‘The Answers In The Trees’ here.  I am going to look at this closer in one of my next posts.

 

In this photo:  You can see copies of the CD and Vinyl version of Radiohead’s The King Of Limbs in a retail store.  Thanks to Jon for sending this to me.

Below is a picture and video sent in from Tyler in Newport Beach, CA.  The Surfboard has The King Of Limbs inspired branches growing up from the bottom of it as well as the Radiohead bear logo.  The video was shot in Ventura, CA and is a music video for ‘These Are My Twisted Words’.
