The Brothers Quay, as they are commonly known, drew upon the attention to detail and old stop-motion animation techniques used by the Czech and English schools of the late 19th Century. Proposing a new look at aesthetic values—increasingly standardized—and blending the best of the old with the best of the new, Jum Nakao employed engraving-style prints, late 19th-century corsetry and rubber laser-cut jewelry.
The themes used in the prints were predominantly surrealist in nature, especially redolent of the artist Jan Svankmajer, a major influence on the Brothers Quay.
The catalogue paid tribute to other surrealists, such as Salvador Dalí (1904-1989), Magritte (1898-1967), Man Ray (1890-1976) and Luis Buñuel (1900-1983).
