    The covers are really cool, but Penguin Books cover art tend to be appear pencil sketched or painted rather than drawn with markers and solid paint. Nevertheless, really cool.

    It’s a testament to the outstanding Ghibli original characters that almost no modification is necessary to turn them “minimal” but looking closely at them. Making something memorable, elegant AND simple is the height of achievement. The Nausicaa cover is pretty original, and excellent.

  3. What, no Grave of Fireflies? That would be so cute!

      These are Miyazaki (the Elder)’s feature-length film projects (Lupin the 3rd: The Castle of Cagliostro is missing, though). 

      Grave of the Fireflies, along with Only Yesterday, Pompoko, and My Neighbor the Yamadas, were done by the OTHER Ghibli guy; Takahata.

        And let’s not forget the other other guy who made the classic Earth Sea Chronicles!… Oh wait. :(

    I want a Pom Poko one! (I know it’s not Miyazaki but still a Ghibli film)
