One of my favorite animated movies growing up was Don Bluth’s The Secret of Nimh. I don’t know if it has stood the test of time, but as a kid I thought it was great. If you’re like me and grew up with the film, you might be interested to learn Odd City and artist Erica Williams have created a limited screenprint and letterpress set and they’ll be available to purchase on Monday January 27th on the Odd City Entertainment store.

ODD CITY, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH MGM STUDIOS, REVEALS LIMITED EDITION PRINT AND LETTERPRESS SET FOR THE SECRET OF NIMH By ERICA WILLIAMS
ODD CITY is extremely proud and excited to be working with illustrator Erica Williams on our latest release. Her work has been taking our breath away for several months now. She has made a name for herself with her distinctive approach to nature, exemplified in her extensive print portfolio. For this reason we thought she would be perfect to create a new print for The Secret of NIMH. Erica has done dozens of gig and tour posters as well as art prints straight from her imagination. But her NIMH print for Odd City will be her first foray into the film world.
And just to add a little something special, Erica has also designed THREE limited edition letterpress pieces to accompany the screen print. Every print purchase will include either one random letterpress, or all three, depending on which package is purchased.
Erica had this to say:
“When asked if I would be interested in making a poster for The Secret of NIMH, the little girl in me started jumping up and down screaming with glee. It was an honor to get the chance to illustrate a poster for the Don Bluth classic that meant so much to me as a young child, and remains today an amazing piece of animated film to be cherished. Please enjoy!”
