A. New Website!
Check out our redesign at www.immedium.com!

Our artists' great characters are front and center! New features include:
- colorful illustrations displayed in wide-screen slideshows
- more videos from artists
- coloring pages from Sid the Squid, Space Cadet Topo, and Year of the Tiger.

Plus we have a new "e-postcard" page.
- www.immedium.com/contactus/epostcards.html
We know how much you like our printed postcards, so feel free to email these to your heart's content.

Let us know what you think!

B. The Year of the Rabbit arrives
The Rosie is hopping across the country to get ready for 2011!
- www.immedium.com/products/yearofrabbit.html

Like her relative Bugs Bunny, Rosie will tickle your funny bone and is drawn with colorful flair by the animator Justin Roth.

The sixth in our annual Tales from the Chinese Zodiac series continues to break new ground by subverting all those pernicious bunny stereotypes!
(Cue laugh track and cut to Elmer Fudd saying, "Oh, I'll get that Wascally Wabbit!")

We have 7 more "one of a kind" collages (8 x 10 prints).
Order an autographed Year of the Rabbit book, and we'll include this free holiday gift!

C. Thanks for a great 2010!
We value your support. It's that simple.

As publishing continues to evolve, we intend to keep creating wonderful worlds with imaginative artists. And we hope that you take a peek, flip through a copy, and enjoy them with your loved ones.

  • We're glad that more fans love The Octonauts through our UK book editions and their new animated series.
  • We've SOLD OUT of our Burning Man photography book Desert to Dream, and intend to publish a revised edition in 2011.
  • and we have more inspired stories in store next year. In the meantime, we will award these "fan appreciation" prizes at the end of the month:

    1. Octonauts: win a 8 x 10 collage print!
    The first two people who buy 2 or more Octonauts books (autographed of course) will get this nice prize!

    2. Sid the Squid: win a 8 x 10 print of the book cover!
    Ask your child to draw Sid and email us a photo of them & their artwork to Sid@immedium.com.

    3. Space Cadet Topo: win a 8 x 10 print of the book cover!
    Ask your child to draw Topo and email us a photo of them & their artwork to Topo@immedium.com.
    - plus a free NASA "Journey to the Stars" educator's guide and DVD to 2 lucky winners.

    Space Cadet Topo: the Day the Sun Turned Off
    (978-1-59702-022-0, $15.95)

    "Those wise owls at Immedium sure know how to spot a cute book when they see one. The latest from them is Space Cadet Topo… which is a tale of him saving the solar system with his sidekick Tinny Bot. Perfect for little kids or cute-loving bigger kids!"
    - Super Cute Kawaii

    Sid the Squid and the Search for the Perfect Job
    (978-1-59702-021-3, $15.95)

    "Sid the giant squid, with his many useful arms and huge, expressive eyes… unsuccessfully directs traffic, fights fire, cooks in a restaurant, washes windows, and attempts other work to great comic effect...it's hilarious to see Sid's multitasking legs in handsome, computer-generated cartoon illustrations rendered by a seasoned DreamWorks story artist."
