On Oct. 8, 2013, Abrams Books is releasing "The Wes Anderson Collection," a book-length study of the writer-director's seven films is anchored to a long conversation between Wes Anderson and yours truly. The book delves deeply into each of Anderson's movies, dissecting every angle and influence with commentary, illustrations, and photography.
