This is a Japanese-language magazine about anime.

"The Golden Age of the Flying Boat" is the English title of this book, and it embodies Miyazaki Hayao's love of floatplanes. Included are the three manga shorts that he drew for Model Graphix, which eventually became the Studio Ghibli film Kurenai no Buta (Crimson Pig/Porco Rosso), as well as aircraft designs (for the Savoia and other mythical planes seen in the film). Full-colour photos of completed model kits and of the real aircraft that inspired Miyazaki's designs, as well as commentary by Miyazaki himself and an interview with him, round out this special volume. Whether you're a fellow fan of floatplanes, a fan of Miyazaki, or just a fan of "Porco Rosso", you'll need this book on your shelf! 72 pages, soft cover.
