The general contents seem similar to what is described for the Roman Albums of MH, Nausicaa, etc... The "film story" is broken up into three parts, at the beginning & end and in between the two other sections of the book:

Inside of Chihiro: "Keyword dictionary[jiten] & Book Guide", character sketches and a nice map of the yuya building, "Layout & original picture[genga] selection", and staff interviews including a "Special Interview" with Miyazaki. Various other information about the production as well.

Outside of Chihiro: Two more articles: "Miyazaki anime ni 'gochis�sama'", which seems to discuss various common themes in Miyazaki's films (I think...) and "Chihiro o sagashite~iky� o mekuru tabi~", about real places and things that inspired the settings, etc. in the film.
