  • Max Dalton drew up an amalgamation of all seven Anderson features for the book's front cover. My typography manages to just barely invade the landscape.
  • Max Dalton's endpaper roll call of Anderson characters along with the jolly front cover typography.
  • The table of contents sets the tone for the stamp collecting adventure. These stamps feature the type treatments created for each film. (Notice the absence of Futura!!!)
  • We chose background textures and fabrics to work with each film. For Bottle Rocket, we surround the essay with shots of grassy lawns.
  • A particularly touching trio of stills from Rushmore.
  • The Life Aquatic’s tour of Steve Zissou’s boat gets an intricate collectible card treatment.
  • The Dream Train sequence from The Darjeeling Limited gets a set of stamps affixed to a vintage postcard.
  • I invented the Cine-Star brand of collectible cards for Fantastic Mr. Fox.
  • We used vintage Boy Scout uniforms for the Moonrise Kingdom fabric treatment.
  • Max Dalton’s back cover shows the same front cover scene late at night.
  • My advance copy of The Wes Anderson Collection arrived last week. The book is built around a set of thoughtful essays and extended interviews with author Matt Zoller Seitz . It overflows with stills, behind-the-scenes shots, props and ephemera from all seven Anderson features as well as wonderful illustrations created by Max Dalton for each film. As part of the design strategy, I took the title “collection” literally and imagined sets of stamps and cards that an Anderson character might well be obsessively collecting. Please enjoy this small taste from the full 336-page book. More to come!
