O artbook do mononoke é basicamente 80% prints do filme, com muito pouco conteúdo inédito como sketchs e artes conceituais. O que salva são os storyboards nas últimas páginas. Enfim, sou fã desse filme e esperava mais conteúdo inédito.
The book consists of many stills from the movie and lots of concept art too. Practically every page has colour artwork on it detailing everything from the environments to the characters. Often a shot from the film is paired up with the concept art so you can see where the illustrators were coming from and how the final artwork was different, if at all.
In the back of the book are lots of the storyboards which shows how the dynamics of the action was mapped out. Very interesting if you are into film making processes, but personally I'm all about the artwork rather than the storyboards.
The book is slightly bigger than A4 size, which mean the art is a good size - not too small, and it is bound in a glossy printed hardback, it does not come with a dustcover, but none of my other Ghibli books did either.
If you are a fan of the movie, of Studio Ghibli or animation/illustration then this really is a musty for your collection. It is a masterclass in lighting, colour and form; not only in animation context but illustration aswell. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and that you use it as a reference book as much as art-eye-candy.
Many thanks for reading!
