Description

Atari is one of the most recognized names in the world. Since its formation
in 1972, the company pioneered hundreds of iconic titles including Asteroids,
Centipede, and Missile Command. In addition to hundreds of games created for
arcades, home video systems, and computers, original artwork was specially
commissioned to enhance the Atari experience, further enticing children and
adults to embrace and enjoy the new era of electronic entertainment. The Art of
Atari is the first official collection of such artwork. Sourced from private
collections worldwide, this book spans over 40 years of the company's unique
illustrations used in packaging, advertisements, catalogs, and more. Co-written
by Robert V. Conte and Tim Lapetino, The Art of Atari includes behind-the-scenes
details on how dozens of games featured within were conceived of, illustrated,
approved (or rejected), and brought to life! Includes a special Foreword by New
York Times bestseller Ernest Cline author of Armada and Ready Player One, soon
to be a motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg. Whether you're a fan,
collector, enthusiast, or new to the world of Atari, this book offers the most
complete collection of Atari artwork ever produced!

"For me, revisiting the beautiful artwork presented in this book is almost
as good as taking a trip in Doc Brown's time machine back to that halcyon era at
the dawn of the digital age. But be warned, viewing these images may leave you
with an overwhelming desire to revisit the ancient pixelated battlefields they
each depict as well." -- from the Foreword by Ernest Cline, author of READY
PLAYER ONE
