Wes Anderson, the man behind beloved classics such as The Royal Tenenbaums and Fantastic Mr. Fox is back once again with a film that is sure to be another outstanding production. Isle of Dogs is set two decades from now, on an island inhabited solely by dogs who have been quarantined due to an outbreak of “dog flu”. Scarlett Johansson, Bryan Cranston, Tilda Swinton, Ed Norton and of course Bill Murray all provide voices for the stop-motion characters. In honour of Anderson’s visually stunning movies, I’ve put together this list of Etsy items inspired by his work. I’ve had a few of these little gems favourited on Etsy for a while now so I did some digging and found a couple more lovely bits and pieces to add to the list.
Wes Anderson Illustrated Postcard Set
These postcards from Natalie Andrewson are beautifully illustrated, miniature versions of Anderson’s movie posters. I’d recommend clicking through and having a look at the individual designs because they’re really cool. My favourites are The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and Moonrise Kingdom but they do come as a set of 8 which you can own for only €8.69.
Wes Anderson Rainy Day Activity Book
From Seinfeld to The X-Files and Twin Peaks, Pizza Eaters have tonnes of really funny “Rainy Day Activity Books”. These handmade books are “A loving tribute to one of the great modern directors and the activity books our parents would give us on those cold & wet winter days. Featuring Colouring Pages, Dot To Dot, Word search, Odd One Out and much more!” These books would make a great gift and for under €3, they’re a bargain!
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou Necklace
I love these necklaces from Emma Evans, she has a unique style and makes really cool jewellery. For more items like this check out The Tee Shop.
Grand Budapest Hotel Mug
This mug from Laura-Kate Draws is just one of the many vibrant, hand-drawn illustrations that she has to offer. Ex-Girlfriends Cards also have a fantastic set of four Wes Anderson coffee mugs which I’ve linked here if you want to check them out.
Fantastic Mr. Fox Handmade Pins
These cute Fantastic Mr. Fox and Ash pins are from Sayonara Baby. This shop has a great selection of film and television themed brooches, earrings and necklaces.
Moonrise Kingdom Handmade Brooch Set
I wouldn’t usually post two similar items but I couldn’t decide which of these lovely brooches to share. This brooch set would make a lovely gift for a Moonrise Kingdom fan.
Margot and Richie Tenenbaum Paper Dolls
Expect to see me sharing a whole bunch of stuff from Dolly Loves Dallas because their items are fantastic. If you’re a Royal Tenenbaums fan then this Margot and Richie bunting might also tickle your fancy.
Margot Tenenbaum Illustrated Tee
This Margot Tenenbaum t-shirt is from another shop I’ve featured before in my ‘7 Weird But Wonderful Cult Film Etsy Finds‘ post. Hello Hurra has the best selection of unusual illustrated tees and amazing sticker sets.
