    Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel is remarkable for numberous reasons, but the use of typefaces may not have been largely discussed yet. While Anderson has made extensive, and nearly exclusive, use of Futura for all of his movie titles and posters until Moonrise Kingdom (where he opted for a custom typeface, designed by Jessica Hische), he has employed Archer for The Grand Budapest Hotel. The countless number of graphic props that were designed by Annie Atkins include packaging, stationery, banknotes, postage stamps, signage, keychains, gates, flags, shopfronts, menus, passports, books and local newspapers:
