Coming October 2016: the Art of Atari Hardcover Book #ArtTuesday

Due out later this year from Dynamite Entertainment is this absolutely massive 352-page hardcover Art of Atari book, examining both the history of the machine and also the illustrators and artists that crafted some of the most iconic titles in gaming history. In addition to nostalgic box cover art reproductions, the book will also feature concept art, patent drawings, and even rejected art that didn’t get approved at the time. You can pre-order on Amazon, and I’ll also announce when it’s available later this year. I cannot wait to see some of this art!

ArtofAtariCover

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!
