These clever cult-classic character cut-outs by Mab Graves are positively "pulp-able." American artist Mab Graves is a pop-culture pro and is praised for her intricate illustrations. Graves must be an avid Wes Anderson fan, for she chose to create paper versions of some of his most celebrated characters in the popular film 'The Royal Tenenbaums.'

Fans of this artistic and quirky film can now play with paper versions of morbid Margot, Richie and Royal. The designs of the paper dolls resemble IKEA furniture instructions, and are very clean and simple.

Mab Graves gives Wes Anderson fans the "royal" treatment with these clever paper doll characters from 'The Royal Tenenbaums.'
