The first unofficially-licensed book based on the Atari® 8-bit Home Computer. The book pays a huge tribute to this incredible home computer, it’s product design and its amazing catalogue of third-party software associated with this iconic 8-bit system. The book is an unofficial publication created by myself Darren Doyle and is my first publishing outing under the Greyfox Books™ label, the book is the very first book of this kind to be released for the Atari 8-bit home computer enthusiast in a visual compendium, ever!
We have spent many months on its development and acquired some incredible content along the way. The amazing amount of support and contributions we have received from private collectors and review contributors has been fantastic, making the Atari: A Visual History book a reality.
With the Atari: A Visual History book, the visuals are the main focus, with roughly 210-220 words of text accompanying each game spread. The review of each game has especially been given a lot of research and thought during the writing process from myself and all contributors involved. Within the book, you’ll also find a series of larger features and interviews with developers and software house profiles and much more, ensuring a great mix of visuals and words.
Overall, the book will contain around 50,000 words and hundreds of iconic images; each one is given its own unique flair in presentation and professional preservation which will make it the perfect coffee-table Atari book.
