The Wes Anderson Collection

Product Description

Imported from USA

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

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.”
(Complex.com)

“It’s smart, informative, and looks beautiful. In other words, it’s the perfect gift.” (Complex magazine)
