"a big and beautiful book that combines the sugary-sweet palette of Anderson’s cinematography with the snackable summaries of a guidebook." (The Best Books to Give This Year)
— The New York Times Book Review
"The Instagram trend you didn't know you needed...Art may imitate life, but as evidenced by the thousands of people designating their photos #AccidentallyWesAnderson, perhaps the opposite is also true."
"This coffee table book, full of Andersonesque visuals spotted around the globe, is a respite for the soul as much as it is really good decoration."
— Entertainment Weekly
"'Accidentally' provides the theatrical whimsy we need now, when travel (not to mention moviegoing) is mostly a dream. When life seems upended, the pleasing symmetry of the Anderson-style images offers a comforting sense of control.
— Washington Post
"Varying in layout, the images share vibrant color composition, both joyful and surreal…True to its inspiration, the collection is breathtaking, witty, and happily ambitious, a perfect diversion for film fans and globe trotters alike."
