AnimeLand Magazine 2014 Miyazaki Issue

These magazine scans are of the January/February 2014 issue of AnimeLand magazine, published in France. Hayao Miyazaki is the cover star of this issue, which devotes 15 pages to the animation legend and his films. In addition to Studio Ghibli, the magazine discusses his work in manga comics and his extensive pre-Ghibli works. Sherlock Hound (known simply as Sherlock Holmes in UK and France) is given an article all to itself, as well as four pages on The Wind Rises.

I really enjoyed looking through these pages. I don't read French very well, and what I do know probably just comes from watching Pepe Le Pew cartoons, but I think anybody can understand the thrust of the articles. The page layouts are very clean and the art assets are suitably colorful. I'm reminded a little of the excellent books Mi Vecino Miyazaki and Antes De Mi Vecino Miyazaki.

Kudos to the Ghibli fan who sent me a .pdf copy of these magazine scans.

my initial thought was to translate the scans to make it accessible to a wider audience, sadly the content is far from behind interesting.
Every year or so they publish something about Ghibli/Miyazaki and write pretty much the same thing, definitely not worth a read.

Though, have you read their special editions about both Miyazaki and Takahata? These two books are actually very interesting, but I'd assume that one needs to understand French a bit better to figure out what is written.
