The Puppet Animation of the Brothers Quay


Buchan, Suzanne. The Puppet Animation of the Brothers Quay. 2003, University of Zurich, Faculty of Arts.

Abstract

This work is the first thorough analysis of the creative oeuvre of the Quay Brothers. Known for their animation shorts that rely on puppetry, miniatures, and stop-motion techniques, their fiercely idiosyncratic films are fertile fields for Suzanne Buchan’s engaging descriptions and provocative insights into the Quays’ art—and into the art of independent puppet animation.
