From the Publisher. The Quay Brothers are internationally renowned moving-image artists and designers who, for over thirty years, have been at the vanguard of stop-motion puppet animation and live-action movie making, working in the Eastern European tradition of filmmakers such as Walerian Borowczyk, Jan Švankmajer, and Yuri Norstein and championing a design aesthetic influenced by the graphic surrealism of Polish poster artists of the 1950s and 1960s.
Quay Brothers: On Deciphering the Pharmacist’s Prescription for Lip-Reading Puppets, published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, presents the full range of the Quays’ art, including previously unseen moving-image works and a little-known body of works on paper, including graphic design, drawings, and typography.
