i have mentioned my love of wes anderson (and symmetry and color) before. i've also mentioned my love of beautiful books. so, let's pull it all together now. take a look at this awesome five minute video of the books displayed in wes anderson movies, created by luis azevedo. the film also has a really interesting essay on the influence and symbolism of books in wes andersen films. here's a little peak:

"In the work of Wes Anderson, books and art in general have a strong connection with memory. The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) begins with a homonymous book, as does Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009). The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) begins and ends with a book. Moonrise Kingdom (2012) ends with a painting of a place which no longer exists. These movies have a clear message: books preserve stories, for they exist within them and live on through them."
