New Kickstarter: The Masters of Pixel Art - VOLUME 2

Here we have news of the latest retro book to hit Kickstarter, this time its The Masters of Pixel Art - VOLUME 2. I think you will agree this looks stunning, here is a brief description as taken from the campaign page.



The Book

This is the direct sequel to The Masters of Pixel Art volume 1, a successful Kickstarter project released earlier this year. The Masters of Pixel Art series is a dedication to all pixel art, presenting a selection of the very best artworks in an exclusive production.

Volume 2 is an extremely nice collection of Commodore 64 art (mainly), together with images made on other "exotic low-end" machines like the Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum, Atari XL-XE, Commodore Plus/4 and MSX.

Many images are presented with background information, comments by the editor and in-depht stories from the artists themselves. The pixel graphics that emerged in the 80's has inspired and created a sub-cultural era of pixelled art, still very active today. This book is an attempt to capture the style and soul of the non-profit fellow creativity of pixel art.



The artists have shared inspiring, interesting and amusing background stories and information about their experience with pixel art. With texts both by the book author and the individual artists themselves, we hope to introduce more background information on compo-winners as well as lesser known pieces. All texts in the book are in English.

We aim to capture the style and masterpieces of the most famous pixel artists, mainly from the demoscene. This book features graphics from the amazing 8-bit computers mentioned before: the Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum, Atari XL-XE, Commodore Plus/4 and MSX.
