This, along with the original
The Wes Anderson Collection
are simply wonderful books. Beautifully produced and incredibly insightful, it caters to the serious cinema geek as well as the hip Anderson fan. Ample sized to be casually left around the house as a coffee table book, this is one I keep dipping back into to marvel at and enjoy (almost as much as the film).
The author is well informed and adept and drawing out the subtleties that influence the viewer of Wes Anderson and it adds a whole new level of appreciation of the craft and attention that go into his films
For anyone not yet convinced, the author has also made some short video essays of their work on Vimeo under the username rogerebert.com.
Wasn’t what I thought it was going to be, thought it was about the filming sets and custom designs but it wasn’t! Think the cover was a bit miss leading. And the cost of sending back, my god it’s expensive sending back to Amazon, which I didn’t in the end? £7.99 to send back?
I have been a massive Wes Anderson fan for a few years now, and when I saw this book in the BFI Library I knew I had to buy it. I can confirm it is the best purchase I have ever made. Not only is the book In fabulous condition, but the pages are packed with aesthetic screen grabs and lots of intriguing information about the film. I would highly recommend this book for any fellow Wes Anderson fans out there!
