Director Hayao Miyazaki ranks among the most interesting and original figures currently working in world animation. His charming children's films My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki's Delivery Service enjoy a rapidly growing audience in the U.S., and his brilliant Princess Mononoke, which broke box-office records in Japan, was released theatrically in the U.S. in November of 1999. Although storybook adaptations and a few Japanese volumes about individual films have appeared in the U.S., a major study of his work in English is long overdue. Miyazaki's many fans will enjoy Helen McCarthy's Hiyao Miyazaki and Mark Schilling's Princess Mononoke: The Art and Making of Japan's Most Popular Film of All Time, but neither is fully satisfactory.
Schilling's Mononoke is a translated and expanded version of The Art of Princess Mononoke, published in Japan in 1997. A respected journalist based in Tokyo, Schilling is a much more polished writer than McCarthy. His summary of Miyazaki's career is concise but informative. Scores of handsomely printed backgrounds, cel setups, and frame blowups trace the story of the film, but the reproductions of Miyazaki's own pencil-and-water color drawings are even more interesting. The layouts, landscapes, inspirational sketches, and early studies of the characters reveal the mind of a great artist at work.
Like McCarthy's Hiyao Miyazaki, Schilling's Princess Mononoke would have benefited from more careful proofreading; in a discussion of the use of computer animation techniques, for example, Schilling turns "morphing" into "morfing." --Charles Solomon
Hayao Miyazaki is a master storyteller and visionary, which is why this book is the perfect companion to the biggest Japanese moneymaker (until Titanic came along) of all time, Princess Mononoke. The film is a masterpiece. The art is so extradoniary that nothing so vivid or detailed can be produced in a live action movie. The story really gets you thinking, about how man and nature must work together in order for both to survive.
This hardcover book is tremendous. It has a Studio Ghibli history, plus, it's broken down scene by scene with storyboards, pictures and a lot more. There's even a section on computer images, and how and when they were put into the film.
If you have seen the movie and enjoyed it, or at least enjoyed the visionary style, you truly need to pick yourself up a copy of this book. If you're a Miyazaki, anime or art fan, this quite a good book for you too. It'll capture your imagination for hours and hours on end.
I liked the book so much that I picked up two: one for my brother and one for myself.
If you've seen the movie and want to know more about its production or thoughts from the creator, I highly suggest that you get this book. It will illuminate you on how the movie evolved and will remind you why it is so very special.
This book presents stills and sketches from the movie in a large format, allowing one to linger over, and truly appreciate, scenes only glimpsed in the animation. The art is presented in the same order as the scenes in the film, with brief plot summaries on each page.
The book also includes some of Miyazaki's early concept sketches (not enough of these, in my opinion), and has appendices on the use of computer graphics in the movie and a brief history of Studio Ghibli (the animation studio that made _Princess Mononoke_).
