A Trip To Tynemouth - Miyazaki Hayao Illustrated Manga

A Trip To Tynemouth is a short watercolor illustrated manga by famed Ghibli anime director Miyazaki Hayao. The manga bookends a collection of short stories ( translated into Japanese language ) by British writer Robert Westall, whose novels on World War II ( and in particular aviation and planes associated during that period ) has had a strong creative influence on some of Miyazaki’s works. The book also includes an essay penned by Miyazaki where he shares his thoughts on Westall’s stories as well as his own experiences with WWII.

The manga follows Miyazaki ( appearing once again as his alter-ego pig character ) in an imaginary trip to visit Westall ( appearing as a terrier ) in Tynemouth, where many of his stories are set in.

Please note that this is not an art book, and the bulk of the contents is Japanese text. Miyazaki-san’s charming illustrations however are worth the price of the book, in my opinion.

I also highly recommend all of Miyazaki’s watercolor mangas, works like The Wind Rises and Daydream Notes.
