Escape into the fantastic world of Wes Anderson with this new travel images e-book
Over the past two years, a group of over a million people have gathered online social media sites that celebrate the great love of travel, photography, design, and, ultimately, the best celluloid creation by director-general Wes Anderson. The Instagram story, @accallyallywesanderson – launched in 2018 as a self-proclaimed love affair with ‘Anderson fanboy’ Wally Koval – is currently gaining 3,500 followers a week, all captivated by his photos of a real place that seems to have been stripped of Anderson’s fanatic justice. It is so popular on the platform that the Instagram office in New York City has a conference room called account.
And now the director alone has accepted the folded honor, which is the preface to Koval’s new book, Cognitively Wes Anderson. The tour of the 200 best shooters on the account is accompanied by personal stories behind any seemingly impressive venues and Technicolor venues – from Prague’s Hotel Opera, a two-story Grand Budapest Hotel in Anderson, to Roberts Cottages in California, an excellent house that can be focused on all its activities.
With Anderson’s recent release, The French Dispatch, back in 2021, we’ll wait a bit to see if Timothée Chalamet, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton and many others play a group of American journalists doing business in the fictional city of the twentieth century 2000 in France. But in the meantime, these images, as the world mimics Anderson’s art, offer beautiful embellishments.

The other three… read by the video
The only story by filmmaker Tom Tom Shone about the life and work of Christopher Nolan. Through a series of interviews with the ‘blockbuster auteur’, finding unseen photographs, textbooks and drawings, Shone reveals the amount of research that Nolan provided to hunt for places, including Paris in the film’s main film, Inception, Iceland as twice on various planets in Interstellar, as well as a great connection to the director and the beach at Dunkirk. It’s a good story to read for those who have seen, or want to see, Nolan’s epic biopic, Tenet. (Faber & Faber, £ 30)

Nowhere, perhaps, has it awakened the inspiration for a sophisticated technology like the Big Apple and, always on the lookout, is Manhattan’s popularity. The beautiful landscape of New York City has been carefully captured in this bright new book by photographer and New York native Christopher Bliss. Dedicated to exploring the city’s well-known history, high-rise architects and sculptural designs, in addition to the popular cinemas such as the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, and Central Park on a regular basis, Bliss has also incorporated the latest events from the changing Brooklyn scene.
