    Pitch-perfect 1970s props from Wes Anderson’s “The Royal Tenenbaums”.

    These book and magazine covers all appear in Wes Anderson’s tale of an extended family with literary distinction (and, in one case, athletic infamy). — Criterion

      Anyone know who designed these?

      Maybe “Joan Winters — graphic design,” according to IMDB.

      Here’s her imdb page, which proves nothing, but she’s done a fair bit of other period stuff.

      The book covers from the opening titles of the little-seen “Gentlemen Broncos” — lovingly recreated sci-fi paperbacks — should be harvested for Fonts In Use.
