What does a building or the pretty “accidentally Wes Anderson” phone booth? According to Wally Royal, the creator of the immensely popular Instagram account by that name, “You know it when you see it: whether it’s the symmetrical lines, the pastel hues, the immaculate composition or something idiosyncratic and beautiful that you can and can’t describe at once. ” Lucky for all of us, Royal has curated a catalog of some of the best selections around the world. This catalog, Accidentally Wes Anderson, is the latest pick in our series on beautiful travel-related coffee table books, Just Booked.
The delightful book is organized by continent, and so it zooms from one cute pastel spot to another around the globe. Each image is accompanied by a text telling a bit about the backstory as well as who submitted the photo. In North America, you can marvel at grand buildings like the Georgia Hotel in Santa Monica or the Grand Opera House in Wilmington (we’ll definitely be driving there soon!) Or in interiors like the indoor pool of the Pittsburgh Athletic Association ( where Mr. Rogers swam each day!). It also devotes a lot of space to smaller, easily overlooked wonders, like a subway payphone in Toronto.
For those who want to stroll into the distance through the aesthetic defined by the famous director’s films, inspiration can be found at the Naval Hospital in Buenos Aires, a pancake stand in Croatia, a branch of the BNP Paribas branch. in Wroclaw, or the Najim Al-Imam Religious School in Najal. Regardless of what you might be interested in, this is without a doubt a book that is sure to pique the interest of your guests.
