    Book details

The definitive examination of the art and animation of Studio Ghibli’s masterpiece of fantasy and flight, Castle in the Sky!

The latest in the perennially popular line of Studio Ghibli art books, which includes interviews, concept sketches, and finished animation cels from classics such as Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro.

Hayao Miyazaki’s Castle in the Sky was the first feature film produced by the legendary Studio Ghibli. Sheeta, a girl who has the power to defy gravity, is on the run from pirates when she meets the young inventor Pazu. Together they explore the secrets of Laputa, a flying city constructed by a long-lost race of people. All of Miyazaki’s major themes, the power of flight, the bravery of young women, and a world wrecked by change, are captured by beautiful animation and joyous storytelling.

Hayao Miyazaki is one of Japan's most beloved animation directors. His first feature, The Castle of Cagliostro, was released in 1979. His film Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, based on his own manga, was released in 1984. In 1985 Miyazaki cofounded Studio Ghibli, through which he directed the box-office smashes Princess Mononoke (1997) and Spirited Away (2001), which won the Golden Bear at the 2002 Berlin International Film Festival and the Academy Award® for Best Animated Feature Film in 2003. Howl's Moving Castle (2004) received the Osella Award for technical achievement at the 2004 Venice International Film Festival. In 2005 VIFF awarded Miyazaki the Golden Lion Award for Lifetime Achievement. His other acclaimed films include My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, and Ponyo. Miyazaki's essays, interviews, and memoirs have been collected in Starting Point: 1979-1996 and Turning Point: 1997-2008. His final film, The Wind Rises, was nominated for both a Golden Globe and Academy Award®.

    So as a big fan of Miyazaki (and the studio ghibli films) I had to get this new edition of Castle in the Sky, and I have not been let down.The book arrives in perfect condition, and very quick. The cover is beyond beautiful, the amazing teal colours and the artwork on the front alone is good enough to grasp you in. The book is completely identical to the original Japanese one, the only difference is this book has hard, beautiful, crisp pages.It opens with the original propsal for the film, and there's a lovely introduction which tells you about the film and how it was made.There are also a few screenshots from the movie which below have a caption to tell you exactly what is happening and what the characters are feeling. Throughout you get a lot of beautiful artwork pieces.It ends with the complete English language dub script.
