    In Moonrise Kingdom (2012), preteen Suzy and Sam, run away together from their respective homes, on their fictional island of New Penzance. To create this book, I gathered three interviews of director Wes Anderson, and integrated different graphic elements of the film, from the gingham cloth to the typeface Tilda created by Jessica Hische for the movie poster, or the watermark from Suzy’s stationery, in order to create a unique editorial design that captures the movie’s 1960s feel that Anderson characterizes as the “Memory of a Fantasy”.

    Texts are set in a combination of Compagnon Light (designed by Juliette Duhé and Léa Pradine) and DM Serif Display – a derivative of Frank Grießhammer’s Source Serif by Colophon.
