ACCIDENTALLY WES ANDERSON
Accidentally Wes Anderson is a breathtakingly beautiful photography book inspired by the whimsical aesthetic of film director Wes Anderson. Compiled by Wally Koval, the book presents more than 200 locations around the world that, in one way or another, combine visual elements typical of Wes Anderson’s films: distinctive architecture, stunning landscapes, meticulous symmetry and delicious pastel colours. The book begins with a foreword written by Wes Anderson himself.“
“Accidentally Wes Anderson, a book that grew out of an Instagram account of actual locations around the world that look like Wes Anderson movie sets. He is my favourite director of all time – The Life Aquatic! Hotel Budapest! Moonrise Kingdom! All these visuals are endlessly inspirational.” – Ann Squires Ferguson of Western Interior Design Group.
