The first copies of Holloway are inspiringly made by hand-press and raw lead, depicting beautifully etched or engraved holloways. Illustrator is Stanley Donwood, the renowned creator of Radiohead’s album covers. Together with writers Robert Macfarlane and Dan Richards they went to explore the Dorset holloways- a trip that was initially inspired by Geoffrey Household’s thriller Rogue Male from ‘39. This piece of art work was then made in a small edition of 277 copies that were immediately sold. Faber & Faber later published a hardcover edition which had to be reprinted four times before it was even released. There are also prints available of some of the art work from the book.
