The Wes Anderson Collection (Hardcover)
A Brooklyn-based writer and filmmaker, Seitz has written, narrated, edited, or produced more than a hundred hours' worth of video essays about cinema history and style for The Museum of the Moving Image andThe L Magazine, among other outlets. His five-part 2009 video essay, "Wes Anderson: The Substance of Style," was later spun off into aNew York Times bestselling hardcover book series: The Wes Anderson Collection(Abrams, 2013) and The Wes Anderson Collection: The Grand Budapest Hotel (Abrams, 2015).
Seitz is the founder and original editor of The House Next Door, now a part of Slant Magazine, and the publisher of Press Play, a blog of film and TV criticism and video essays. He is the director of the 2005 romantic comedyHome.
Michael Chabon is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of many novels, the most recent beingTelegraph Avenue. He lives in Berkeley, California, with his wife and four children.
Max Dalton is a graphic artist living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, by way of Barcelona, New York, and Paris. He has published a few books and illustrated some others, includingThe Wes Anderson Collection: The Grand Budapest Hotel (Abrams, 2015). Max started painiting in 1977, and since 2008, he has been creating posters about music, movies, and pop culture, quickly becoming one of the top names in the industry.
Writer/director Wes Anderson guides movie/television critic Matt Zoller Seitz through Anderson's life and career in a hardcover book-length conversation, woven together with original illustrations and production images fromBottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou,The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Moonrise Kingdom.
The result is a meticulously desiged book that captures and reflects the spirit of Wes Anderson's movies: melancholy, playful, wise, and wonderfully unique.
In The Wes Anderson Collection, Seitz expands a series of video essays on Andersons influences, illuminating as much of Andersons process as possible in a massive, beautifully rendered volume. Although it looks (and sometimes reads) like a coffee table book, The Wes Anderson Collection brings together style and substance to provide a loving homage to Andersons films and moviemaking in general.
