Blog > Accidentally Wes Anderson postcard book giveaway

  icon

We assume everyone has heard of Wes Anderson’s movies by now. From The Grand Budapest Hotel to The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, his delightfully quirky visuals and unique storytelling perspective have made him a beloved filmmaker and a cinema icon. You can always immediately tell when you’re watching one of his movies, sometimes by a single frame! There are places out there in the real world that look a lot like a scene from one of his movies, often a single peculiar house, an ornate façade or just a color scheme that evokes another era…

A big red AWA logo, with Est 2017 around it, and the tagline Accidentally Wes Anderson underneath it

Enter the Accidentally Wes Anderson project (or AWA for short). They’re a community of adventurers with an appreciation for these fine idiosyncratic sceneries that play out all over the world, collecting them and displaying them on the AWA website and Instagram account. The result is a carefully curated map and galleries featuring hundreds of delightful travel-worthy locations. Anyone can submit a new location to the map, so it’s a good idea to always keep an eye out for any structure, façade or surroundings with a special symmetry that moves the imagination.

As fans of trips to unusual places, we love browsing these and bookmark spots for a future vacation or roadtrip. In particular, we like discovering new mail-related places, and the nice people at AWA have put together a snail mail collection that makes us very excited indeed! Check out North Hobart Post Office, Saigon’s Central Post Office, or the Post Office at the end of the world… Don’t those look like they’re all worth a visit?

The AWA community has been going strong for 5 years, and in the meantime, a book featuring the best of these locations has been published, with 500,000 copies sold around the world in 7 languages. Now, a cool postcard book joins the collection as well, featuring 26 of these special places. We’re super excited about it, and have thus partnered with them to offer a few of these to postcrossers! 🎉

There are 20 prizes in total to be won: 3 books, 2 super special copies of the postcard book signed by Wes Anderson himself, and 15 standard postcard books! There are 2 ways to participate in this fantastic giveaway, and you can choose one or both of them:

  • You can explore the AWA map, and then leave a comment on this blog post to let us know which place there you’d like to travel to the most;
  • The AWA postcard book on a background of blue tiles
  • If you have a postcard of a place that you think would fit right into one of Wes Anderson’s movies, send it to the AWA with a message and your Postcrossing username (written clearly)! The address is:
    Accidentally Wes Anderson
    442 Lorimer Street
    Ste D #224
    Brooklyn, NY 11206
    USA
    For this raffle, postcards entries will count double.

Because this giveaway involves postcard submissions, we’re giving it an extended deadline, so that everyone has time to dig around for nice postcards and mail them. The deadline for their arrival is January 15, and which point we’ll pick the winners and announce them on a separate blog post. Good luck everyone! We can’t wait to see the locations you share! 😍

Oh! I tremble with delight! I found a wonderful place that I now dream of visiting. This place is Nagashima Spa Land. I just love rides, beautiful locations and cotton candy. I'm not so young, but that doesn't stop me! It is written "be like children" and I follow these words. This is my motto! To rejoice and be delighted with insignificant trifles, beautiful views, speed, nature. It is also important that in these moments of joy my friends were with me. I wish that everyone (including me!) dreams come true to go where he wants!

I honestly discovered this project from the postcard book I started to see around on social media and that's simply great!
I realized that there are 14 spots in Milan (including the metro!), so I'll start from the Duomo (my boyfriend is visiting the city for the first time this weekend and we can't miss it!).
Weird that I like all this simmetry, since I'm the queen of mismatched earrings/sleeves/socks, but it's fascinating!

What a lovely project! Wes Anderson movies are on the top of my list, makes me happy to learn about the merge of my love for cinema, photography and postcards in one place! Will be sure to look around and find something to send them, since there are no postcards from my city, Curitiba in Brazil. Exploring the map I found many beautiful planes, but one that made me the most surprised was one in Antarctica! It looks like right out of the Grand Budapest Hotel movie! I don't think I will be able to go there anytime soon, haha, but it's lovely!

One of my favourite places to visit is not far from my home, Angouleme in the Charente region of France. The map has some beautiful views of this city. Wes Anderson filmed his recent film The French Dispatch here. It caused a lot of local excitment as he filmed in the streets of Angouleme.
What a great idea to make a book of Anderson type postcards.

Ashton Villa in Galveston is among several older homes that have survived major hurricanes and we've enjoyed seeing it. However, I would like to see even more sites on the Texas map to visit which are a little closer to home.

Hoping to visit friends in Michigan, one day, I was intrigued by a restaurant called The Woods on Mackinac Island that has Duckpin bowling included in the experience. There are so many places I have seen and hope to see -- hard to choose.

I would want to visit the Christinehof Castle in Sweden.
I have two reasons why. The obvious one being that I simply love castles. My mother is from the Loire Valley area in France and I always dreamed of living in one of those magnificent buildings whilst visiting my family over there as a child. Although, whom am I kidding? Truth be told, it's still my dream. :)
The second reason is my love for Sweden. I have a degree in Scandinavian studies and spent my final year in Lund, Scania, Sweden. It was an amazing experience and I loved my stay there so much that I had not planned on ever returning to The Netherlands. However, things went south in several areas of my personal life and I could not stay there. It has always left a bit of a bitter taste in my mouth and I haven't visited Scandinavia ever since. That means I haven't been back since 2013.
I would love to go again sometime and visiting this beautiful castle would be a safe way as it connects a love I've never lost with one with which I would love to rekindle.

I have adored castles since childhood, when I watched cartoons about princesses. Because of this, I dream of visiting Germany and seeing the works of architecture live.

Have mailed in a (meh) postcard, too. It's a definite look and I don't have a lot like this fantastic aesthetic. Best of luck to all of you! I'm voting for the Icelandic places. Yeah.

Thank you to Postcrossing and AWA for this amazing collaboration!
I'd love to visit Provo Library in Utah, the United States just for its book club background story. The fact that there was a gentleman building libraries across the country warms my heart.

I'm glad to see a few spots here in Vancouver, BC, Canada, and I'm happy to report that the 9 O'Clock Gun in Stanley Park still goes off every day. I would love to visit several sites in Providence, Rhode Island, where one of my children now lives: the RISD Nature Lab, the Athenaeum, the Providence Public Library, and the Graduate Hotel.

AWA -what a great site - I have sent a postcard of the magnificent staircase of 1892 Bishops Palace in Galveston. The postcards are so inspiring and also make you a little wistful as you realise you are not rich and will not be visiting all these places. Thank you postcrossing for bringing it to our attention

3) Mexico City's Gran Hotel has an all Tiffany glass ceiling - perhaps the most stunning interior anywhere, Mexico City - just visited this place
4) In front of Diego Rivera's "Dream of a Sunday afternoon in the Alameda" housed in the Museo Mural Diego Rivera - a mural with power and in which a film character could compete if dressed appropriately
5) The McHive of Sweden - got to see this miniature to believe it - bees only

I love what Wes Anderson does! I couldn't find a specific place I would like to visit...I want to visit them all! Such a big world! There are so many interesting things around! I used to think that Wes Anders' magic was only in his films.And it turns out that you just need to look around and maybe you can find a piece of magic in everyday life! Thanks for the link! Now there will be something to do in the evenings!☕️
