I'd seen this and ohh yes, but I'm concern about the pricing, its quite expensive, but I think I'll be sucking myself into a purchase none the less. But don't forget we have another amazing Atari Book launching real soon too. 😉

Yes, he has planned a second volume but I think it is dependent on the sale of the first volume.

Yeah, but I feel he maybe is not promoting very well, this sorta appeared out of the shadows and this concerns me greatly for the book, things like this should be getting front seat centre stage. I was notified out of the blue about this one. So I do hope he very much gets it out there, it looks fantastic.

I find the print quality to be good. The cover is shiny and the paper is sort of a satin finish.  Not glossy, not matte.

The number of sales is high enough now that volume 2 is likely going to happen.
