Bitmap Books' Atari 2600/7800: a visual compendium
« on: February 02, 2020, 18:38:44 PM »

Atari 2600/7800: a visual compendium aims to showcase the very best pixel art, cover art and product design on each system. Spread over 528 pages, it features over 200 classic games, with articles on the leading third-party developers, interviews with key figures in the industry and features on subjects, such as cover art, prototypes and homebrew releases. It’s our biggest visual compendium yet, and the good news is that it comes with the desirable lenticular slipcase as standard. Editions available include Hardback, Softcover and also a special Collector’s Edition, which is limited to just 1000 units. We will do another reminder on Monday morning but wanted to give advance warning.

Atari 2600/7800: a visual compendium will be available to pre-order from www.ataribook.co.uk on Monday morning at 7am GMT.

I'm sure this will be on the top table for all Atari 2600 NS 7800 FANS ALIKE, BUT ONCE LEARNING OF Kieren Hawkens involvement, there is no way I could buy this book with him attached, His toxicity and deceptive and exploitative abuse of this community and people is enough to deflect people as I'm sure as soon as they hear that he is attached this could harm sales of the book for Sam and Bitmap Books which is a real shame.

I spoke to Sam and he has confirmed that there is content by that person in the book, not something I personally care about but we are here to inform people of the facts and that is a fact.

Then they may have left the name out from the web site on purpose.  I wonder how the sales have gone.

Edit:  I just tried to order the book and had no problem selecting any version of the book to purchase.
