Wes Anderson's obsessive attention to detail is no secret to those who appreciate his work. Famously, every Wes Anderson frame is a painting, the cinematography of his films is marked by vibrant color schemes and strict symmetry.


Based on the viral online phenomenon and community of the same name, 'Accidentally Wes Anderson' the Book by Wally Koval, celebrates the unique aesthetic that millions of Anderson fans love - capturing the symmetrical, the atypical, the unexpected, the vibrantly patterned, and distinctively coloured in arresting photographs from around the world. 


In Accidentally Wes Anderson, Wally Koval collects the world's most Anderson-like sites in all their faded grandeur and pop-pastel colours, telling the story behind each stranger than-fiction-location.
