Hayao Miyazaki Hardcover – 7 September 2021
A richly illustrated journey through the extraordinary cinematic worlds of beloved filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki
A New York Magazine 2021 holiday gift guide pickFor over four decades, Hayao Miyazaki has been enchanting audiences of all ages. His animated films, often featuring children navigating unfamiliar and challenging worlds, offer timeless explorations of youth and what it means to grow up. Celebrated and admired around the globe for his artistic vision, craftsmanship and deeply humanistic values, Miyazaki has influenced generations of artists. The universal appeal of his evocative natural settings and complex characters, many among them strong girls and young women, cuts across cultural boundaries. This book is published on the occasion of the 2021 inaugural exhibition at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles, in collaboration with Studio Ghibli in Tokyo. It accompanies the first ever retrospective dedicated to the legendary filmmaker in North America and introduces hundreds of original production materials, including artworks never before seen outside of Studio Ghibli's archives. Concept sketches, character designs, storyboards, layouts, backgrounds and production cels from his early career through all 11 of his feature films, including My Neighbor Totoro (1988), Kiki's Delivery Service (1989), Princess Mononoke (1997), Spirited Away (2001) and Howl's Moving Castle (2004), offer insight into Miyazaki's creative process and masterful animation techniques.

Large, heavy, beautifully illustrated. Highly recommended.
Unfortunately, I am far away from Los Angeles, so there is no way I can make my way to the museum. However, they published this beautiful book alongside the exhibit.
Alongside gorgeous art, the book contains essays that run through the history of Miyazaki's career, as well as a look into his creative process and philosophy. This book comes together quite nicely, giving the reader a clear picture of why Miyazaki's films resonate with audiences. The authors did their homework, and have a strong grasp of the filmmaker's themes and values.
The art, spanning across Miyazaki's entire filmography is presented in a non-chronological order. We see storyboards, image boards (concept art), layouts, background paintings, production cels, and even some keyframe animation. Unlike many of the "art-of" books for Ghibli films, there's a greater emphasis on image boards rather than production stills of the finished movie. These samples are process oriented, allowing the reader to see the thought that goes into making a film at Ghibli.
