536 pages of pixel art and product design…look there isn’t much that needs to be said about this book other than I want it. It belongs right next to my other coffee table book about the history of sneakers. You can pick this up from Bitmap Books for about $47. (a rough estimate based on shipping tax and conversion. Hell just bank on a solid $50 and if it’s cheaper it’s a bonus!)
Bitmap also has visual compendiums for the Commodore 64, Arcade games and the Super Famicom. It’s worth a buy if you plan on being one of those old dads who wants to show their kids the “good old days” of video games.
