Mondo X Studio Ghibli

Posted by The Daily Zombies Thursday, August 8, 2013

Mondo, the collectible art division of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema,  takes on Studio Ghibli, one of the most acclaimed animation studios in the world, in a series of new projects announced last month.  



During last month's San Diego Comic-Con, Mondo, the collectible art division of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, was notably prolific with numerous new projects and prints announced. We have earlier checked out some of the awesome prints released for the event. Today, we take a closer look at the well-received collaboration with Studio Ghibli, the world-acclaimed animation studio that brought us Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, and Ponyo, among numerous other brilliant anime films.

First up, here are a recap of the posters of which variant editions were showcased earlier and their regular versions.

Apart from the release of prints of Olly Moss's take on some of Studio Ghibli's most well-known titles, Mondo also released a limited edition vinyl of a compilation featuring performances from the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra on selections from five of most popular Studio Ghibli films. They are Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, The Cat Returns, My Neighbors the Yamadas, and Howl's Moving Castle. Artist extraordinaire Tyler Stout was tapped on to provide three awesome album covers for the compilation and we are no doubt impressed by the artist's rendition of Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and Howl's Moving Castle.
