The Art of Kiki’s Delivery Service – The Storyboard Book Review

Kiki's Delivery Service Storyboard Art Book Review

Kiki’s Delivery Service is probably one of my 3 favourite Ghibli films, falling only behind Princess Mononoke and Totoro. A beautiful coming of age film, the story is simple and is often mistaken as a kid’s movie, but it’s depiction of sadness/loneliness are sombre subjects that adults will also relate to.
The story board book is an excellent way to study the film at one’s own pacing. And like all Miyazaki storboards, its so beautifully illustrated !
