The Secret World of Arrietty - Official Art Book Available in US

Viz Publishing has released Studio Ghibli's official art book for The Secret World of Arrietty, and should be available online and in bookstores near you.  I'm always a big fan of these "Art of..." books, and every fan should have a full collection in their library.  These are always very large and very thick books, containing sketches, drawings, production notes, interviews by the artists, and hundreds of full-color paintings.

In addition, Viz has released the official Arrietty picture book and film comic, which appeal to a younger audience.  These smaller books are a good way to win over your children and family.  These are also a fine addition for the diehard Ghibli collector.  Kudos to Viz for doing an excellent job, as always, and strongly supporting Studio Ghibli over the years.

Amazon currently has The Art of "The Secret World of Arrietty" on sale for $22.62.  Also, you can order the book directly from the Viz website.

I do enjoy concept art books, but the Studio Ghibli Library "Art of" books usually disappoint me. (the exception being Art of Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind: Watercolor Impressions. That was pretty cool.)

These books usually have too many film stills. Why would I want that when I could capture the same screenshots from my DVDs?
