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 Previously unpublished photos, artwork, and ephemera complement a book-length conversation between Anderson and award-winning critic Matt Zoller Seitz.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.

"I love you too, but I'm going to mace you in the face"!

The book is an incredible visual collection of Wes Anderson movie props and inspiration. The one negative would be that the interview dialog writing does not always support the images well. At times it seemed the words on the page had absolutely nothing to add to the pictures. Still highly recommended for anyone looking for more info on the directors movie making process or at least a rambling conversation from him and the author.

"I don't expect you to be as depressed as I am. But I don't think your happiness is appropriate". (The Royal Tenenbaums)
