Miyazaki's films reimagined as dog-eared Penguin book covers

Illustration for article titled Miyazaki's films reimagined as dog-eared Penguin book covers

Hayao Miyazaki's films are marked by rich landscapes and innovative character designs, but these illustrations reduce those films to their most basic components, imagining them as minimalist Penguin book covers.

Jason K sells these as posters and prints at his Etsy store. The texturing on the pieces is wonderful; it gives the impression that these are really the covers from battered and well-loved books.

... Aren't there some copyright issues here? I mean, it's one thing if you just make such fanart for the joy of it, but Jason K. is actually selling these works, effectively making money off of someone else's intellectual property. Unless he has permission to do so, it seems somewhat problematic to me...

... But yes, they are pretty posters. I especially like the ones based on Totoro and Laputa. Not sure I'd want to support the artist if they are, in fact, copyright violations — most of the time I don't get particularly upset about violations of copyright law, but I actually *like* Studio Ghibli. :P
