About the Author
Born in 1941 in Tokyo, Japan, Hayao Miyazaki cofounded Studio Ghibli in 1985 with Isao Takahata. Among his eleven animated features, Spirited Away (2001) broke every box-office record in Japan, and won the Golden Bear at the 2002 Berlin International Film Festival and the 75th Academy Awards for Animated Feature Film. Howl's Moving Castle (2004) received the Golden Osella award at the 2004 Venice International Film Festival. Miyazaki was awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the 2005 Venice International Film Festival. The Wind Rises (2013) was nominated for the 86th Academy Award for Animated Feature Film. In 2014, the Board of Governors for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented him with a Governors Award for lifetime achievement. He is currently working on a new production.

Daniel Kothenschulte is an author, curator, and lecturer on film and art history, and a lover of animation since he first saw The Jungle Book at the age of three. As a film journalist, he is responsible for the film section in the German national daily newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau. He has taught at various universities. He is the author of numerous books, including Hollywood in the 30s and The Walt Disney Film Archives.

Published in partnership with Studio Ghibli, "Hayao Miyazaki" will be available starting Sept. 7 and is set to include hundreds of original production materials, including artworks never seen outside of Studio Ghibli's archives--Pat Saperstein "Variety"
Will satisfy all your Ghibli needs... Fans can piece together Miyazaki's aesthetic process from all 11 of his feature films.--Shawn Ghassemitari "Hypebeast"
A considerable work itself: a treasure for fans of the animator and Studio Ghibli, and a wonderful history, art, and reference piece for students of film and animation.-- "Anime News Network"
the book is artistic biography, aesthetic treatise, creative process explication, and celebration of the filmmaker's work.--W. Scott Olsen "Frames"
Almost too beautiful to be true.--Jyni Ong "It's Nice That"
"much more than a collection of film stills and includes layout drawings, storyboards, production design drawings, key animation sets, maps, backgrounds, and even translations of notes etched into the drawings. The work speaks for itself, and Miyazaki's brilliant imagination is on full display; it's a peek behind the curtain that many will savor"--Matthew Sorrento "Film International"
