The newest addition to the Ghibli ga Ippai Collection in Japan is Ghibli's Bookshelf, a documentary that originally aired in August, 2010, on NHK's satellite network. The documentary discusses children's literature and their influence on Studio Ghibli, as well as Hayao Miyazaki's and Isao Takahata's careers, and even touches on the life of Mary Norton, author of "The Borrowers."
The Blu-Ray and DVD also includes a 40-minute interview with Hayao Miyazaki. A small book will be included in the First Edition run, "mini-library of 50 books boy Iwanami / Miyazaki Susumu election" (9 × 6.5cm, 136 pages).
Ghibli's Bookshelf will be released on June 3, and retail for 6.090 Yen (BD) and 3,990 (DVD). You can watch the official trailer at Ghibli's website here.
