The Wes Anderson Collection: Isle of Dogs is the only book to take readers behind the scenes of the beloved auteur's newest stop-motion animated film?

Through the course of several in-depth interviews with film critic Lauren Wilford, writer and director Wes Anderson shares the story behind Isle of Dogs's conception and production, and Anderson and his collaborators reveal entertaining anecdotes about the making of the film, their sources of inspiration, the ins and outs of stop-motion animation, and many other insights into their moviemaking process. Previously unpublished behind-the-scenes photographs, concept artwork, and hand-written notes and storyboards accompany the text. The book also features an introduction by critics and collaborators Taylor Ramos and Tony Zhou, and a foreword by critic Matt Zoller Seitz. The fourth volume of the New York Times bestselling Wes Anderson Collection, Isle of Dogs stays true to the series with its rich design and colorful illustrations, capturing Anderson's signature aesthetic vision and bringing the series's definitive study of Anderson's filmography up to date.

Isle of Dogs tells the story of Atari Kobayashi, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture. The film features the voices of Bryan Cranston, Koyu Rankin, Edward Norton, Bob Balaban, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Kunichi Nomura, Akira Takayama, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand, F. Murray Abraham, Tilda Swinton, Akira Ito, Yoko Ono, Mari Natsuko, Harvey Keitel, Courtney B. Vance, Ken Watanabe, Scarlett Johnasson, Fisher Stevens, Nijiro Murakami, and Liev Schreiber.

If one movie theater trip to the Isle of Dogs isn't enough, you're in luck: A companion book is soon coming to a store near you. The Wes Anderson film, which boasts a star-studded cast and is due for release March 23, is set in future Japan where all dogs have been sequestered on an island due to canine flu. The tale follows 12-year-old Atari Kobayashi, who sets out to find his bodyguard-pup. In the tradition of recent Anderson films, a gorgeous book featuring original art will be published soon after its release. This one's co-written by film critic Lauren Wilford and filmmaker Ryan Stevenson, with Grand Budapest Hotel author Matt Zoller Seitz contributing the foreword. Through a series of interviews with Wilford, Anderson shares the story behind Isle of Dogs' conception and production, and interviews with Anderson's key collaborators on the film reveal the ins and outs of stop-motion animation as well as many other insights into his creative process. Previously unpublished behind-the-scenes photographs, concept artwork, handwritten notes, and storyboards accompany the text. Entertainment Weekly
