The Fantasically Lazy Photo Post (updated with review link 9/11/09)

I love Wes Anderson’s movies, and I love the way that his attention to detail expands out of the films, and into the merchandise. I picked up the Fantastic Mr Fox soundtrack CD today, and the cover is straightforward enough:

Open it up though, and the CD itself is imprinted with one of Mr Fox’s newspaper columns:

Take the CD out, and underneath you get this, which is a laugh out loud reminder of one of the film’s running gags.

Beautifully done. Anderson and co are very, very precise in the music for these films (the sleeve notes discuss the genres they went through before they hit the mix of songs for the film), and the packaging echoes that same care and love.

PS: Oh yeah, and here’s a review of the film.
