It was only a matter of time before someone committed the gloriously dreamy pink-paletted world of Wes Anderson’s film The Grand Budapest Hotel to book form, and here it is – a tome as magical as the movie. The book, entitled The Wes Anderson Collection: The Grand Budapest Hotel, is written by Matt Zoller Seitz and designed by Martin Venezky, bolstered by more than 300 colour and black and white photographs. The book explores the beautiful world of the ‘Budapest through behind-the-scenes snaps and a wealth of charming illustrations, as well as anecdotes from Anderson about the process of making the film. As with anything Wes Anderson-based, it somehow manages to be terrifically cutesy, quirky and idiosyncratic without making you want to throw up, which is something of an achievement in itself.
