Isle of Dogs is the fourth volume in the Wes Anderson Collection, each of which I have designed. This book is unique because the film’s creation was painstaking and each step was so lovingly documented that there was a wealth of material to sift through. This is not the worst problem for a designer to face, but there were so many beautiful full-spread images of the work-in-progress that it was hard to balance sheer visual impact with importance to the final film. Scenes that are dripping with detail race past in the actual viewing. In addition there were an uncommon number of Japanese cultural references to be unearthed and examined. All-in-all the book takes readers on a deep dive into the makings of one of the most complicated stop-motion films ever created.
