This is an original B2 Japanese advance poster, printed in 1984, for the release of “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind” (風の谷のナウシカ).
Based on Miyazaki’s own manga, “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind” tells the story of Nausicaä, the princess of a small nation who lives in a world devastated by a holocaust called the “Seven Days of Fire”. She tries to stop other warring nations from destroying themselves and from destroying the only means by which their world can be saved from the spread of polluted wastelands.
While created before Studio Ghibli was founded, the movie is often considered to be the beginning of the studio because of the involvement of Studio Ghibli’s Hayao Miyazaki, Isao Takahata, Toshio Suzuki, Hideaki Anno and Joe Hisaishi. Because of this, Studio Ghibli generally includes Nausicaä as a “Ghibli film”.
According to the information on the book “The Archives of Studio Ghibli, Volume I”, this is an advance poster, which was used in an advance ticket sale for the film’s release.
Notice that this poster’s design is not based on the movie, but the ongoing graphic novel that was appearing in the monthly pages of Animage. The poster was created using illustrations drawn by Hayao Miyazaki, based on a rough draft by Kaoru Mano, known for producing the opening title graphics for the films of Studio Ghibli.
