If you are a fan do yourself a favor and get this book you will not regret it!
Few modern directors so embody to idea of intentional artifice as Wes Anderson. Opinions about his work are all over the map, but almost always strong. His films inspire scorn as well as reverence. He's an auteur in every sense of the word, and his films, from Bottle Rocket through to Moonrise Kingdom display a remarkable confidence of craft, tone, style and distinct personality. There are no films quite like Wes Anderson's, no matter how many indie filmmakers attempt to emulate him.
In this absolutely incredible book, Matt Zoller Seitz sits for a series of interviews with Wes Anderson, discussing each film in his body of work, running through his development as a filmmaker, his influences, his techniques and his general philosophies on film and filmmaking. Comprehensive is perhaps the best word to describe The Wes Anderson Collection, but this book is more than that. Designed with as much thought and care as any of Anderson's own films, Seitz's book features big, beautiful pages chock full of accompanying stills, media and supplemental material about each film and often corresponding to the interview at hand. Reading the book is such a pleasure. It makes you want to revisit each and every Anderson film, but also explore all the other films and influences discussed. It immerses the reader in Anderson's world, and provided that's something the reader would enjoy it's a could not be more engaging.

Preamble : To fully enjoy and get the maximum leverage from the contents of this book, I highly recommend the reader to watch (all, if possible) of Wes Anderson's films first. For those who already have, you're in for a treat. :]
The Wes Anderson Collection is a rich and thorough discussion/dissection of the director's full repertoire of films (from Rocket Bottom to Moonrise Kingdom). Through conversations with the author Matt Zoller Seitz, Wes Anderson gives us illuminating insights into his ideas, motivations and inspirations, served with hearty amounts of production stills, reference images, concept sketches, storyboards and more.
This book is not only a great treat for fans of Wes Anderson's films but also an excellent resource for the craft of film-making (art direction, production design, cinematography, costume design, the works). I'm going to read it from cover to cover, and then do it again. Very highly recommended.
After reading the book I have watched three of Anderson’s movies and have become an instant fan. Also, thanks to this book, a well informed knowledgeable fan who appreciates the many talents of this wonderful director.
Great book! Highly recommended not only for Wes Anderson fans but for anyone interested the process of making a movie.
