Attention to detail must run in the Anderson family. Much like the production design for each of Wes Anderson’s films, the art of Eric Chase Anderson is full of tiny, almost imperceptible, grace notes. Eric, who drew each of his brother’s Criterion Collection covers except for that of Bottle Rocket, delivers his best work here. Between the florid script of the film title (reminiscent of a young Tenenbaum learning how to write cursive), the pretentious pink shock of the Tenenbaum flag and the general melancholy, wintry feel, Eric Chase Anderson perfectly captures the film’s tone.
