Trapeze has bagged a book from the hugely popular Accidentally Wes Anderson Instagram account, authorised by the director himself.
Anna Valentine, executive publisher of Orion, acquired UK and Commonwealth rights for Accidentally Wes Anderson by Wally Kovel from Laura Mamelok at Little, Brown in the US.
It features brand new photographs of real-life places around the world that seem plucked from the world of Anderson’s films, alongside the human stories behind each façade. It is written by Kovel, creator of the account which boasts 822k followers.
Valentine said: “I have been a huge fan of @accidentallywesanderson since its conception; the uncannily symmetrical, pop-pastel photographs of real-life places can’t fail to transport you to a Wes Anderson dreamscape, so I couldn’t be more thrilled to be publishing this book. And to have the blessing of Wes Anderson is the icing on the cake.”
