The Wes Anderson Collection Hardcover – October 8, 2013
|New from||Used from|
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

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

As far as looks, this book is large and heavy (which I like). I believe it's 1 square foot and maybe 1.5-2 inches thick. It would make a lovely coffee table book if your coffee table is tidier than mine. I ordered this book with Amazon Prime two-day shipping and on the second day, I woke up to find it at my door. Wonderful service, as usual.
I can't recommend this enough. If you enjoy the whimsical worlds that Anderson creates, this book is more of the same. Wonderful.
If you are a fan do yourself a favor and get this book you will not regret it!
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.
I am very happy with the quality of the binding and heft of the cover, and am confident that my copy will stand up to lots of use. The pictures are wonderful, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading more about Wes' vision for some of my favorite films. The production stills for Fantastic Mr. Fox are particularly stunning, but the on-set photos from The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic really give you a sense of the camaraderie between the actors.
If you or someone you know are a Wes Anderson fan, this should be on the top of your list for the next gift-giving occasion.
