More Criterion, More Adrian, More Ozu

It seems like just last week we were telling you about Dan Clowes doing artwork for the Criterion Collection.
This week, Adrian Tomine! He's done the cover (and interior artwork) for a two-DVD Ozu box set, The Only Son and There Was A Father.

Eric Skillman, an art director for Criterion, has put up a really interesting blog post where he talks about the design process and shares some preliminary sketches, letting us laypeople in on how a DVD case comes to be beautiful. I've seen some Ozu, and what struck me is how apt Adrian's style is for representing the beauty of the still, composed scenes found throughout his films.

P.S. Don't forget! Adrian will be signing copies of Scenes from an Impending Marriage this Sunday from 2 to 4 pm at the New York City Gift Show, which is taking place at the Javits Convention Center. He'll be at the Macmillan booth, #7572.
