The Curse of Fleet Street

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 18th Jan 2024

 £14.70

Stanley Donwood and Dan Richards will discuss, in a rambling and discursive manner, some ways in which letterpress printing might be used in ways which may horrify printers.

Learn how the desktop publishing revolution of the late 20th century led inevitably to the establishment of the Glastonbury Free Press, and many other instances of irresponsibility, carelessness and stupidity performed by Mr Donwood and his various collaborators.

There will be many digressions, multiple threads lost and countless meanings mangled.

You will not learn anything from this event.

Stanley Donwood has worked with Radiohead since 1994. His evocative and haunting imagery has created their distinctive visual identity. He has created the official artwork for Glastonbury Festival since 2002 and he has worked with Robert Macfarlane and Dan Richards on the Faber bestseller Holloway and art directed the film the bomb produced by Eric Schlosser and Smriti Keshari, as well as countless book covers and numerous other projects slowlydownward.com.

Dan Richards is a writer and broadcaster. He is co-author of Holloway (with Robert Macfarlane and Stanley Donwood), and the author of The Beechwood Airship Interviews, Climbing Days, and Outpost. He has written for publications including the Guardian, Economist, Esquire, and Monocle. Overnight, a book exploring the nocturnal world, is set to be published by Canongate in 2025. instagram.com/dan_zep/.
