Radiohead Newspaper Blotter

(Via Pitchfork) Evidently some of the artwork included in Radiohead's "King of Limbs" Newspaper edition contains contains little paper squares. The artist Stanley Donwood comments below.

Jon Severs: Speaking of which, there's one bit of artwork, a piece made up of more than a hundred tiny squares of art printed on blotting paper, should we read into this one?

Stanley Donwood: Ah! I wonder what people will make of it. There is a guy who recently died, Augustus Owsley Stanley III, who was one of the most famous creators of LSD in history, a very wealthy American. He set up a laboratory making very cheap, pure, good LSD. In theory, someone could dip them in something, they could do that. I don't think that's been done as a marketing ploy before-- not that I am encouraging such activities.
