Studio Ghibli museum releases limited edition art books

Ghibli Museum

The Mitaka institution has released a new set of art books that highlight Hayao Miyazaki’s works dating from 2000-2001.

The Studio Ghibli museum has released a two-volume series that includes over 900 illustrations drawn by Miyazaki. The two books offer readers a behind-the-scenes look into the exhibitions shown at the Studio Ghibli museum, from its planning process to image boards of its interiors. Inside the books are sketches of various highlights from the Ghibli films too, such as the famous Catbus from My Neighbour Totoro. According to Dazed, there’s also an interview with film producer Toshio Suzuki.

Shipping for the book is expected to begin from March 2021. Head to the Ghibli store, Donguri-Sora, to pre-order the two volumes.

The museum opened its doors back in 2001, and last year it launched a YouTube channel to give Ghibli fans a virtual tour around the space. Due to the pandemic, its doors were temporarily closed last year.
