"A nice book for fans"
Nicolas Hernandez Pons
As much as i liked the movie, i can't help to feel that the book fails to keep up to it's standard.
But don't get me wrong. The book is very complete in showing the work behind the movie, and does it neatly.
It starts with an introduction by the very same Hayao Miyazaki, and the follows with sketches, concept art, background art, character design, screenshots, and even the complete movie script.
The only critisims i could give is that the book itself feels a bit washed out. The design of the book doesn't keep up with the beautiful/folklore inpired art it is showing, plain white being the common concept from front to back cover. Maybe this isn't that important, but a preetier design would've sure make a nice adition (see Art of Okami).
That aside, a very nice book for fans of the movie.
