Now Go: On Grief and Studio Ghibli


In Now Go: On Grief and Studio Ghibli, author Karl Thomas Smith combs through the characters and animations of the Studio Ghibli universe to uncover how grief underpins the joyful, comforting films. The 13th issue in independent publisher 404 Ink’s pocket-sized books series, Inklings, the book of essays explores how Studio Ghibli navigates grief (be it small, personal or environmental) and how this depiction reflects the ways grief manifests in real life. With grace and insight, Smith conveys the multiplicities of loss while carving a pathway through it. Price is in Pounds.
