Moonrise Kingdom




Not all the films credits include the book cover artists of the film. Moonrise Kingdom does.

Wes Anderson’s latest film is a total design piece from its book covers to trucking cameras. The Francine Odysseys book-clutch by Olympia Le-Tan. (The original book jacket was designed by Juman Malouf especially for Wes Anderson’s film Moonrise Kingdom).
