Ghibli Museum Mitaka is set to release a set of artbooks that highlight Hayao Miyazaki‘s expansive works dating from 2001 to 2020. The art institution located in Inokashira Park in western Tokyo is dedicated to showcasing the works of Studio Ghibli.
Hayao Miyazaki and the Ghibli Museum contains a two-volume set full of illustrations that Miyazaki featured exclusively at the museum. Packed with colorful sketches and imageboards, 900 in total, the book set offers a detailed look into the animation studio’s production processes, from planning to completion. There are 18 exhibitions that the Mitaka museum held in the past two decades featured in the books, along with an interview with film producer Toshio Suzuki, who has been considered Miyazaki’s right-hand man. With both books combined, there is a total of 174 pages.
