Mondo: In the Mood for Love

IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE was my first foray into Wong Kar-Wai's films and remains my treasured favorite. So getting tapped to take this on for Mondo's anniversary release of the soundtrack on a double vinyl LP and an attending poster was one of those deep honors that still stuns me as I type this even months after completing it. It wasn't at all an easy thing to do given both the reverence, the insane amount of material to pull art from, and Wong's personal devotion to it, but after so false starts, hard turns and swingabouts, we managed to land the plane at last. The listing of the art below comes from back to front showcasing it's final result first and leading back into the studies, sketches and finished work from the first attempt at this terrifically essential project. We essentially had to do the entire thing twice to get it right once. Sometimes this is a thing that happens
