This book deserves 10 stars!!! Just got it today after I pre-ordered it and I really wasn't expecting too much...boy was I wrong. It's not just Atari cover art but some pretty detailed information from the artist on some of the covers. Images of unused covers along with pencil and color studies done by the artists on some of the covers. Fantastic...I mean fantastic scans of the art. I mean I could go on but if you love art it's a must...if you love Atari it's a must. The perfect coffee table book and one I won't be putting down for a while.
Oh, Also there is also small bios on the artist and a quick history of the Atari consoles with some industrial design art of the models.
This is how you do a Art of book! Major props to Tim Lapetino on putting this together.
I received my Atari 2600 for Christmas of 1978 and spent the next 4 years entrenched in everything Atari - from the games, to the manuals that were included, to the boxes themselves. Spending all of my spare change in the arcade during the days, I'd come home and play my Atari for hours before bedtime: Dodge 'Em, Night Driver, and Combat were my first. Then came the onslaught of arcade conversions; Space Invaders, Missile Command, Asteroids. Going to the mall or department store meant another chance for me to be able to look over those wonderful boxes and stare at the artwork hinting at the wonder that they contained. This book takes the reader back to those days and the overall magic and wonder of the early home videogame years. It's more than just pictures of box art - it's stories, personal accounts, history, and informative facts about the early world of Atari. This book is a must buy if, like me, you were in your "prime" years during the late 70's and early 80's. It is going to find a permanent place on my coffee table and will be a source for conversation for many years to come. Thanks to everyone who put this book together!

Excellent book. This book is stuffed with many photos, pictures, and descriptions. There is a History section with photos of the people that worked at Atari. There is a section containing many games, the artwork used for the covers and also a screenshot of the gameplay. The screenshot is small and it would have been nicer to have the screenshot be double the size. There are photos of the consoles, and descriptions about them.The book measures 11.25" H x 10" W x 1.125" D. It's a hardcover book. The binding seems to be strong and sturdy and seems like it will last over the years. I've attached several photos with samples pages from the book. The book contains 351 pages.
Those of us old enough to have started gaming on the Atari 2600 remember that those graphics tended to be somewhat...underwhelming. Playing classic games like Adventure, Combat, Circus Atari and Superman it helped if your imagination could fill in the blanks, and nothing helped that process along like the packaging your game came in. The art on the boxes and instruction manuals laid the foundation for the worlds that the Atari's processor could never actually display on screen.
I've been saying for years that I'd love a collection of that art in a book and I'm thrilled that someone finally did it. Anyone who spent the late 70s hooked on these games should love seeing the high quality reproductions of the art and learning some history about the talented folks who made them all happen. If you're one of us early Gen-Xers this book is for you.
EXCELLENT retrospective of Atari's very memorable graphic design and art....MOSTLY focuses one the home games, unfortunately not too many pictures of the Arcade Cabinet side art, but the entire history of all of the home game systems is very well represented here- Also some spotlights on the artists and many REALLY COOL pieces of art that few got to see...A great book for any fan of classic early 80's video games
