My bedroom is going to be covered with retro Atari art, much to my wife’s dismay, when the Dynamite Entertainment Atari Poster Book arrives in June.
The artwork of Atari inspired a generation and created a bridge from the simple on-screen graphics of its early games to the imaginations of eager gamers. Now, Dynamite Entertainment proudly brings the most iconic, mind-blowing video game illustrations to posters, each one easy-to-remove and perfect for display, showcasing the tremendous talent of Atari’s greatest artists!
“When Dynamite released the much-anticipated Art of Atari last year, its vivid imagery of yesteryear’s console classics clearly struck up fond memories in a generation of gamers,” said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher in a press release. “We’ve seen hundreds of fans on social media enthusiastically reviewing the book and, more importantly, celebrating its long-lost fantastic artwork. The Atari Poster Book will fulfill the collective desire of the Atari generation to admire this artwork in an even larger format, something they can proudly display as their favorite youthful pasttime.”
I have seen a number of poster books over the years, and while they are all fantastic, most are still printed with are on the front and back. While this works great for a book, if you want to display the art on both sides, it is nearly impossible unless A) you have a glass wall, or B) if you have figured out how to navigate through non euclidean space.
The Atari Poser Book will have 40 pages of art curated by Tim Lapetino.
