Publications by Stanley Donwood:

Among the very first official publications we find:
  • Small Thoughts 1998
  • Catacombs of Terror! 2002, 
  • Tachistoscope; 2003
  • My Giro 2005 Story in eight chapters (unpublished)
  • Walking from Great Bedwyn To Averbury.
Stanley Donwood has published till now two fiction books of short stories:
  • Slowly Downward: A Collection of Miserable Stories (2001)
  • Household Worms (2011)
In  the summer of 2012 he worked on a book in collaboration with Robert Mcfarlane and Dan Richards:
  • Holloway
The author announced (in his Slowly Downward) he is working on a third fiction book, which will probably be called: Folly
There are two official books about Stanley Donwood's art and works, published with his own partecipation in:
  • Dead Children Playing (2006)
  • Red Maze (2010)

From the 2006 on his official self-led site http://www.slowlydownward.com/index.html ,whenever at a new event, show or work, Donwood publishes a Taglibro: articles of pdf pages (in the shape of a journal-newspaper's page) about what he is working at the moment and explaines, techniques and ideas of his works. Inbetween 2006-2012 he has published about 37 Taglibros.
As for the Taglibro style form, in 2011 working on the launch of Radiohead new album The King Of Limbs, Donwood ideated a newspaper called The Universal Sigh, and the newspaper was distributed for days in the main European cities for free.
The Universal Sigh's main purpose was not only to accompany the new album of the English band, but also to spread rapidly a new ideology- on a support and surface able to dissolve, with time, exactly as all newspapers do << if left on a bench all day long>> for example. This is one of the main themes, around which spins the artist's attention: environment and climate change.

*:

For Stanley Donwood takes a roule of a great importance also the voice and the intonation of the story teller. In fact visitting his site http://www.slowlydownward.com , on the main page, under the smiling bear, there is a player which tells some stories from Slowly Downward and Household Worms books that are told by the voice of Ric Jerrom, one of the leading performers and directors of the English Natural Theatre Company.
One of the last perfomances took place in Bristol at the Literature Festival, in October 2012
