    From Bookforum -------------- Max Dalton's charming children's book-style illustrations introduce each film with a double-page spread of the movie's principal location, incorporating "fourth wall" views suggested by Anderson's familiar cutaway dollhouse technique, used so well in the opening of Moonrise Kingdom and The Life Aquatic. Designer Martin Venzky unpacks the filmmaker's sources and style—with an inspired deployment of stills, amusingly corny display type, and inventive layouts with images made to resemble postage stamps, scrapbook clippings, and other collectibles—perfectly capturing Anderson's seductively twee combination of obsessive detail and ironic distance. —Christopher Lyon Read more ( javascript:void(0) ) Review ------ “In The Wes Anderson Collection, Seitz expands a series of video essays on Anderson’s influences, illuminating as much of Anderson’s process as possible in a massive, beautifully rendered volume. Although it looks (and sometimes reads) like a coffee table book, The Wes Anderson Collection brings together style and substance to provide a loving homage to Anderson’s films and moviemaking in general.” (The A.V. Club) “Your coffee table wants—no, scratch that—needs this book . . . Packed with 400 images of everything from behind-the-scenes set shots to makeup inspiration to hand-drawn storyboards, the massive tome is pure eye candy. But in addition to the visuals, Seitz also dives deep into each and every Anderson film.” (NYLON) “A magical tour of Wes Anderson’s filmography.” (C magazine) “Each page of this book—filled with conversations, photographs and artwork surrounding each film—showcases Anderson’s pop-culture inspirations from Hitchcock and Star Wars to Jacques Cousteau and the French New Wave. Better than most of their kind, the talks reveal a candidness and honesty between critic and director, allowing Seitz to dig around Anderson’s vault and share his discoveries.” (FILTER) “The Wes Anderson Collection comes as close as a book can to reading like a Wes Anderson film. The design is meticulously crafted, with gorgeous full-page photos and touches like a still representation of Rushmore’s opening montage.” (The A.V. Club) “Reading the book, you feel as if you’re disappearing into the miniature world of Anderson’s movies, like you’re playing around in the files and fastidiously kept dossiers assembled for each project. In this way, the book mimics the work.” ( “It’s smart, informative, and looks beautiful. In other words, it’s the perfect gift.” (Complex magazine) Read more ( javascript:void(0) ) See all Editorial Reviews ( /dp/product-description/081099741X/ref=dp_proddesc_0?ie=UTF8&n=283155&s=books&isInIframe=0 )
