Description

    • Imported from USA.

    Wes Anderson is one of the most influential voices from the past two decades of American cinema. A true auteur, Anderson
    is known for the visual artistry, inimitable tone, and idiosyncratic characterizations that make each of his
    films—Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited,
    Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Moonrise Kingdom—instantly recognizable as “Andersonian.” The Wes Anderson Collection is the
    first in-depth overview of Anderson’s filmography, guiding readers through his life and career. Previously unpublished
    photos, artwork, and ephemera complement a book-length conversation between Anderson and award-winning critic Matt
    Zoller Seitz. The interview and images are woven together in a meticulously designed book that captures the spirit of
    his films: melancholy and playful, wise and childish—and thoroughly original.

    Praise for The Wes Anderson Collection:

    “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
