DELMONICO BOOKS/ACADEMY MUSEUM OF MOTION PICTURES

Hayao Miyazaki

By Jessica Niebel. Foreword by Toshio Suzuki. Text by Pete Docter, Daniel Kothenschulte.

Hayao Miyazaki

A richly illustrated journey through the extraordinary cinematic worlds of beloved filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki

A New York Magazine 2021 holiday gift guide pick

For over four decades, Hayao Miyazaki has been enchanting audiences of all ages. His animated films, often featuring children navigating unfamiliar and challenging worlds, offer timeless explorations of youth and what it means to grow up. Celebrated and admired around the globe for his artistic vision, craftsmanship and deeply humanistic values, Miyazaki has influenced generations of artists. The universal appeal of his evocative natural settings and complex characters, many among them strong girls and young women, cuts across cultural boundaries.

This book is published on the occasion of the 2021 inaugural exhibition at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles, in collaboration with Studio Ghibli in Tokyo. It accompanies the first ever retrospective dedicated to the legendary filmmaker in North America and introduces hundreds of original production materials, including artworks never before seen outside of Studio Ghibli’s archives. Concept sketches, character designs, storyboards, layouts, backgrounds and production cels from his early career through all 11 of his feature films, including My Neighbor Totoro (1988), Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989), Princess Mononoke (1997), Spirited Away (2001) and Howl’s Moving Castle (2004), offer insight into Miyazaki’s creative process and masterful animation techniques.

Remarkable 'Hayao Miyazaki' is a Staff Pick Holiday Gift Book, 2021!

Remarkable 'Hayao Miyazaki' is a Staff Pick Holiday Gift Book, 2021!

This dreamy production imageboard for Ponyo, Hayao Miyazaki’s unforgettable animated 2008 adaptation of The Little Mermaid, is reproduced from Staff Favorite Holiday Gift Book Hayao Miyazaki, published to accompany the Academy Museum retrospective featured this weekend in T, The New York Times Style Magazine. “Having used CGI in his previous three feature films,” curator Jessica Niebel writes, “Miyazaki decided, with Ponyo, to return to hand-drawn animation and once more push its potential by rendering the shapes and movements of a fluid world ‘where magic and alchemy are accepted as part of the ordinary.’” continue to blog

'Hayao Miyazaki' opens at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures!

Reproduced from the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures’ inaugural exhibition catalog (co-published with DelMonico Books) on the work of the beloved Japanese animated filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, this 1988 imageboard was produced for My Neighbor Totoro—perhaps the most indelible, and certainly the most personal and popular of Miyazaki’s films. "In an almost symphonic way, Miyazaki's films orchestrate drama and calm and create an ideal emotional setting for the sensations stemming from his imagination," Daniel Kothenschulte writes. "Similarly, his aesthetic finds a balance between traditional and modern visual languages, between the landscape painting of past centuries and surreal pictorial worlds, between the graphic stylization of traditional Japanese art and the radiant colorfulness of European impressionism.… What has, more than anything, contributed to Miyazaki's fame is [his] ability to create his own fully imagined universe through an unmistakable combination of storytelling and stunning visual language." continue to blog

'Hayao Miyazaki' is BACK IN STOCK!

Featured spreads are from Hayao Miyazaki, the gorgeous, richly illustrated survey published to accompany the first-ever retrospective of the legendary Japanese animated filmmaker’s work in the United States—which also happens to have been the inaugural exhibition at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles last Fall. Exhibitions curator Jessica Niebel writes, “There is no doubt that Hayao Miyazaki’s films are exceptional. This is true not only of the quality of the animation—a huge team effort that requires the grueling work of the most talented and experienced craftspeople in Japan—but also of the filmmaker’s approach and his intent. While Miyazaki is driven by the desire to create films that are entertaining, he believes they should, above all, have purpose and meaning. Touching something deep within our souls, his films elicit a powerful longing for another world—a world that may not be perfect but is nevertheless beautiful. We might even believe this place exists somewhere not too far from our own reality. Perhaps his films feel so strangely familiar because they share their creator’s understanding of the world, of humanity and of the times we live in. Miyazaki is much more than an animator or a director of films. He is an auteur and a philosopher who seeks to express his insights, values and vision through animated films. While never negating, simplifying or downplaying the problems that we—and his protagonists—may face along our journey, he seeks to convey that there is still beauty in this world, something to be appreciated, something to give us hope." continue to blog
