[All DVD covers from Studio Ghibli films]
I love Studio Ghibli. When Howl’s Moving Castle came to theaters, I must’ve taken the hour and a half drive four—maybe five?—times to the only theater playing it in my region. I loved the colors, and the characters, and the story (even though it was miles different from the novel by Diana Wynne Jones, which I love equally as much and re-read every year). The Cat Returns is my pick-me-up whenever I feel sad, and Porco Rosso is the hilarious and heartfelt comfort on rainy days.
My other comfort, my love, my obsession—is books.
So I thought, why not try to pair the two together like a nice cheese and some red wine?
