but came in great use and full of plenty of information.
It is brilliant, she is so happy.
Would recommend this book to anyone.
I feel it could have been a bit more colourful and interesting to look at and include more sketches and drawings.
Following my reading of this wonderful book,I re watched all Studio Ghibli films to experience the techniques mentioned in his interviews.In the original Japanese format,of course.So that's even more hours of joy to be thankful for...YAY Miyazaki !
It was good to also learn about the origins of Nausicaa and the trials that were overcome to bring us this amazing story.
I went straight to Amazon to get the original manga Box set.Luck me..,I'm nearly the happiest person in the known Universe !
I must be in the top 10..,surely ?!
Anyway,the style and questions at the interviews Miyazaki attended were very revealing for me and I enjoyed some blistering replies ! There appear to be some commentators/reviewers who don't seem to appreciate an honest or heartfelt opinion.Sour grapes,if you ask me.You can't fault a man who readily documents and admits his own shortcomings.I admire him.
An excellent book if you want to know more about how a master craftsman goes about creating a masterpiece.
Obviously,as Hayao readily admits,it takes a team to complete the film but the ideas have to come from someone.
This book reveals where and how those gems came from and the development process.
That's what I wanted and that's what I got.
I must be in the top 9..,surely ?
