The Making of Fantastic Mr. Fox by Wes Anderson

As of this writing I haven’t seen the film yet, but looking at the book “The Making of Fantastic Mr. Fox” – this stands alone from the film. I am usually not a fan of “making of ….” Film books, but this one is beautifully designed and is almost an art book (well, published by Rizzoli). Anderson has a fetish attraction to these handmade dolls and various sets that are in the film. And yes it has all the stuff that is usually in a “making of ….” Film book, but the detail work that took place and that is in this book, which is simply awesome and beautiful. For those who love craftsmanship to the highest max!
