I have nothing but praise for this excellent art book. To see the processes of bringing this magnificent film to life is quite interesting and just pure magic. Included is concept art, backgrounds, interviews with the crew about what they did and how they went about it, among many other things. Any fan of Miyazaki's work is sure to love this.
