Dynamite Entertainment Announces the Art Of Atari Deluxe Edition

Dynamite Logo - B&WAs the buzz around Dynamite Entertainment’s upcoming release of ART OF ATARI® continues to grow, the publisher announces the highly limited Deluxe Edition of perhaps the most important retrospective in the history of gaming! Perfect for lifelong Atari fans, collectors, and those that appreciate its grand history, the ART OF ATARI Deluxe Edition recaptures the glory of retro gaming with nostalgic visuals of the Atari Era, plus countless hours of pixelated video game entertainment!

ART OF ATARI represents the most comprehensive retrospective to date, a whopping 350+ pages that provides insightful history and high-resolution scanned artwork culled from hundreds of production/concept illustrations, photographs, video game packaging, and groundbreaking advertisements from the height of Atari’s innovation and popularity. Now, for the hardcore enthusiast, Dynamite Entertainment proudly pulls out all the stops with this gorgeous ART OF ATARI Deluxe Edition, allowing them to relive the classic era of gaming with our Deluxe Edition special features:
• A sturdy Deluxe Edition slipcase, perfectly capturing the design of vintage game packaging!

• A unique, leather-bound Deluxe Edition “Game Cartridge” cover design!

• An Atari Vault Steam Key, allowing fans to relive the Golden Age of Gaming with 100 of the most popular iconic games (including Asteroids®, Centipede®, Missile Command®, and many more), now with online multiplayer capability!

• A frameable Limited Edition Print featuring brand-new artwork by original Atari artist Cliff Spohn!
Since 1972, Atari pioneered video game technology which revolutionized interactive entertainment and birthed the modern gaming industry. The company created arcade games, home consoles, and personal computers to entertain millions of people around the world, creating instant classics like Asteroids®, Centipede®, Missile Command®, and Yar’s Revenge®.

“Before Atari, entertainment was something you only observed. Atari fearlessly revolutionized entertainment, transforming it into an interactive experience. Our world would never be the same again,” says Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. “Publishing ART OF ATARI is a high point in Dynamite’s publishing history, as we honor the visual history of a bold innovator. Since announcing the project, we’ve received an overwhelming response of heartfelt excitement from the gaming community. For the most hardcore enthusiasts out there, we hope that our Deluxe Edition — with its many bonus features that include extensive game downloads — delivers a fun and colorful experience every bit as enjoyable as that electric feeling of having a joystick in hand.”

To bridge the gap between imagination and the new era of video games, Atari employed an array of talented artists and designers to emblazon game cartridges, packaging, and advertising with their mind-blowing visions. These sci-fi, sports, and adventure worlds elevated classic video games to the realm of high art. ART OF ATARI is the first official collection of original art created for its groundbreaking video games. Sourced from museums and private collections worldwide, this volume spans more than four decades of incredible art and design. Whether you’re a fan, a collector, or new to the world of Atari, this book offers the most complete retrospective of Atari artwork ever produced.
“For me, revisiting the beautiful artwork presented in this book is almost as good as taking a trip in Doc Brown’s time machine back to that halcyon era at the dawn of the digital age. But be warned, viewing these images may leave you with an overwhelming desire to revisit the ancient pixelated battlefields they each depict as well.” — from the Foreword by Ernest Cline, author of READY PLAYER ONE, soon to be a major motion picture, directed by Steven Spielberg
