Max Dalton's charming children's book-style illustrations introduce each film with a double-page spread of the movie's principal location, incorporating "fourth wall" views suggested by Anderson's familiar cutaway dollhouse technique, used so well in the opening of Moonrise Kingdom and The Life Aquatic. Designer Martin Venzky unpacks the filmmaker's sources and style—with an inspired deployment of stills, amusingly corny display type, and inventive layouts with images made to resemble postage stamps, scrapbook clippings, and other collectibles—perfectly capturing Anderson's seductively twee combination of obsessive detail and ironic distance. —Christopher Lyon

I can't recommend this enough. If you enjoy the whimsical worlds that Anderson creates, this book is more of the same. Wonderful.
Anderson doesn't release many films....this book shows you why. The level of craftsmanship and detail put into each production can only be accomplished with many months of time and effort. The settings, atmosphere, camera angles, lighting, and overall ambiance are just as important as the screenplay and the casting. This book meticulously plots the steps involved in each production. My only regret is that the book was released before The Grand Budapest Hotel; that would have made for an interesting chapter. Still, this book will make a much-perused volume in the library of any Anderson aficionado or film buff.
If you have anyone in your life like this, the book will make an excellent gift. While I like Wes Anderson, I can't claim that I would scream like a 12 year old at a Justin Bieber concert were I given this gift. I only have the memories of my 55 year-old father performing that same maneuver when presented with this masterpiece.
That being said, it's still chock full of glorious photos. I bought as a gift for part of my partner's Christmas present and she loved it. I highly recommend this for any Wes Anderson fan.
Also note: I got it straight from Amazon for $24 even. Urban Outfitters is also selling it for the full MSRP $34.99. Barnes and Nobel still have some, so don't pay the huge markup from third parties if you can avoid it.
If you are a fan do yourself a favor and get this book you will not regret it!
It does what it does very well. I thought it did something slightly different. The book deserves 4 stars!
