Mamoru Hosoda, animator, director, and writer, is known for his works such as BELLE (2021), Mirai (2018), Wolf Children 2012), and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (2006). The Man Who Leapt Through Film: The Art of Mamoru Hosoda contains 350 full-color illustrations. Written by renowned animation critic and historian Charles Solomon, and a foreword by Donald Paul Hahn, the American director and producer of Disney's Beauty and the Beast (1991) and Lion King (1994), it invites readers to journey into the mind and creative process of one of the most celebrated anime directors working today. The book features exclusive interviews alongside hundreds of never-before-seen sketches, storyboards, background paintings, character designs, and concept art.
