For the typography of Anima, Thom Yorke returns to Radikal, the typeface already used for Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes from 2014. Nootype’s geometric sans again is used in all caps, but this time with upright letters, in bright red. The album comes with art by Dr Tchock (i.e. Thom Yorke) and long-time Radiohead collaborator Stanley Donwood.
Radikal also appears on the poster and in the trailer for the accompanying short musical film directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. While the album cover features the Bold weight, the title in the trailer shows the Black.
“A beautiful hardback book containing both the lyrics and many strange drawings done in pencil by Stanley Donwood & Dr Tchock. Orange 180 gram double vinyl with an additional 10th track (Ladies & Gentlemen, Thank You For Coming). […] Printed onto Italian Fedrigoni special brown material paper and section sewn, the book is made up with an exposed orange cloth spine and orange gilt edging and finished with bodonian binding.”
