The Art of Atari is currently $21.51 on Amazon, and I can't say if this is the best the price has been for this, but this book is one of the few I would recommend at full price. At the beginning of gaming, a HUGE imagination was key, and the art Atari used still drops my jaw to this day, and this book is all about it.

 

Sadly, as games got better looking, many developers/publishers used less and less quality box art, as more games could speak for themselves with in game graphics. Art like this, and the same with manuals is now just a lost "art" so to speak, but when it was good, damn, it was truly amazing. The reviews for this book speak for themselves, and at this price, this is a no brainer.

Well, here's a blast from the past, Pixel Perfect: Punch-Out!! (NES Hardcover Book) is now available on Kickstarter, as this was first offered there back in 2013. The author made the mistake of trying to get "N" involved, and needless to say that went tits up, and the book was never officially released.

 

While looking at past info for this, the author released the PDF about a year after it was originally cancelled, and allowed for fans to print their own books. I guess at some point past that, the author printed his own copies as well, and offered them on Amazon($237 if your interested). LOL I guess it was good I never find out about those, as I would have for sure bought one, as this booked looked way cool back when it was first offered. Now it can be had for a much better price, and has some updated content as well.

Where's the Stretch Goal to add NFC chips to each page so I can continue to not buy Amiibo?
