Radiohead collaborator and author Stanley Donwood reveals a new body of work, re-imagining the scenes of Thomas Hardy’s poetry. These thirty-three screenprints of original illustrations were first created by Donwood for Thomas Hardy’s Selected Poems, introduced and selected by collaborator Robert Macfarlane, and published By The Folio Society.




Stanley Donwood has created limited edition screen-prints to illustrate the book, documenting his travels around Wessex and Dorset, shadowing the journeys once taken by Hardy. Donwood’s illustrations accompany the selected poems, as well as a delicate design crafted for the cover and outer slip of the book edition. The Book is available to buy at jealous North during the run of the show until July 18th and online at The Folio Society.





“Responding to Hardy’s layering of the present and past, Donwood juxtaposes the modern and the ancient, providing a new way of visualising Hardy’s ‘Wessex’. Binding the scheme together are the birds that he identified as the strongest link between Hardy’s world and ours.”

Greg Jameson. ENtertainment focus. May 27 2021




In appreciation of the strong abiding affection Hardy felt to the lands of Dorset, Donwood immersed himself in the romantic landscape and rendered atmospheric layered drawings, providing a new way of visualising Hardy’s Wessex. Donwood has created sketches on old paper, yellowing book pages, found envelopes, scraps, and torn pages – depicting his own journeys through Dorset which trace some of the scenes which inspired Hardy’s greatest poetry and prose.




Donwood and Macfarlane have collaborated over the years on various literary projects, including the book ‘Ness’ released in 2019 a book of 'modern poetic mythology'. CLICK BELOW TO WATCH AN INTERVIEW WHERE BOTH DISCUSS THEIR WORK ON THE BOOK ‘NESS’

'Donwood’s shared fascination with the English landscape is eerily depicted in a wide range of images, each telling a strong story of the landscape in Dorchester. On creating new artworks for this Thomas Hardy book edition Stanley quips “He’s been dead for a long while, so he can’t object to my interpretation of his oeuvre.”'

Ray Jackson. Felten Ink. 2021
