    The eighth feature film from writer/director Wes Anderson, The Grand Budapest Hotel, premiered at the 64th International Film Festival in February 2014, winning the Jury Grand Prix Silver Bear award and, shortly after, widespread critical and popular acclaim.

    Centered around Ralph Fiennes’s M. Gustave as the slick beating heart of a meticulously crafted, visually resplendent matryoshka-doll caper-film set primarily in an alternate-history version of 1930s Europe, Grand Budapest Hotel is also, perhaps, the most fullest expression to date of Anderon’s varied thematic and stylistic idiosyncrasies, influences, and obsessions.

    This supplemental one-volume companion to The Wes Anderson Collection (Abrams, 2013) is the only book to take readers behind the scenes of The Grand Budapest Hotel with in-depth interviews between Anderson and cultural critic/New York Times bestselling author Matt Zoller Seitz.
    Anderson shares the story behind the film’s conception, the wide variety of sources which inspired it—from author Stefan Zweig to filmmaker Ernst Lubitsch to Photochrom landscapes from turn of- the-century Middle Europe—personal anecdotes about the making of the film, and many other reflections on his filmmaking process. These interviews will be accompanied by behind-the-scenes photos, ephemera, and artwork, all woven together by the same designer, Martin Venezky, and illustrator, Max Dalton, behind The Wes Anderson Collection.
