For the discerning child — by which we mean, the discerning parent — there is no filmmaker more beloved than Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki, whose Studio Ghibli has spent the past quarter-century making the kind of quality kids’ movies that may be even more popular with adults. The genius behind such classics as My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, and Spirited Away, Miyazaki weaves stories that are equal parts fairy tale, environmentalist fable, and beautiful animation. So, it makes sense that the latter quality has inspired Ramón García of The Art of Animation to create a series of elegant minimalist posters for Studio Ghibli films, which we spotted at The Mary Sue. See some of our favorite images after the jump, and visit The Art of Animation for the entire set.
