Based on the novel by British author Diana Wynne Jones, in Howl's Moving Castle Hayao Miyazaki brings to life a fantastical time in 19th century Europe when science and magic defined the popular zeitgeist. There's a foppish wizard named Howl, a pesky witch from the wastelands, an anthropomorphic chimney fire and a young girl who carries a most unusual curse. And, of course, there's the moving castle... a towering, omnipresent structure that dominates the landscape.
A generous collection of concept sketches, fully rendered character and background drawings, paintings and cell images, The Art of Howl's Moviing Castle brings the movie into your library. Along with the stunning visuals, the book also presents interviews and comments with the production staff, including key points straight from the director.
