Do you find yourself compulsively re-watching Rushmore, The Fantastic Mr. Fox and The Life Aquatic? Is your go-to Halloween costume a member of the Tenenbaums? If so, The Wes Anderson Collection is definitely a book for you.

Written by Dallas film critic Matt Zoller Seitz, who has been following Anderson's work since his film debut in 1993 with the 12-minute short Bottle Rocket, this book is brimming with candid conversations between Seitz and Anderson, details on his creative process, charming original artwork by Max Dalton and stills from each of his films. Seitz calls this book “a tour of an artist’s mind, with the artist as guide and amiable companion.”

Check out the fantastically made book trailer (in the visual style of Mr. Anderson, naturally) from Abrams:

We know there are plenty of Wes Anderson fans out there! Does this look like a worthy Christmas gift for anyone on your list?
