Few in film have a style as recognizable as that of Wes Anderson. The director’s often whimsical work — from his earlier films, Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums, to his more recent, Moonrise Kingdom and Fantastic Mr. Fox — is best known for its artful and symmetrical shots, delightful soundtracks, darkly comedic (and deeply creative) storylines and incredible cast.
Movie critic Matt Zoller Seitz chronicles the life and career of Anderson in his books The Wes Anderson Collection, which looks at the director’s earliest movies, and The Wes Anderson Collection: The Grand Budapest Hotel — as seen above — which focuses on the director’s 2014 film of the same title. Original illustrations, production images, interviews with costume designers, essays by music critics — all color the pages of these aesthetically Anderson-esque coffee table books.
