The Art of Howl’s Moving Castle
Drawings of Howl’s Castle alone make this book a must-buy. The intricate details and movement are just astonishing when you consider it was all done by hand. Hayao Miyazaki truly is a master at his craft. These movies are not mere cartoons, they are art pieces. To see the wind ripple across the grass… clouds float through the air… and a castle stomp across the land.
