Following up on last year's hit release, Art of Atari, Dynamite has announced an Art of Atari Poster Collection. The book collects 40 removable prints of some of the most iconic images from the golden age of gaming. The poster book is curated by Tim Lapetino, the author of the Art of Atari, and features images from classic titles like Centipede, Asteroids, Missile Command and Swordquest.
"I'm thrilled that we are able to make the classic artwork of Atari available to fans and art aficionados in a new form," Lapetino says. "It's great to be able to showcase and enjoy the amazing artwork in this larger format, and it's what fans have been clamoring for since I began researching Atari."
"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," says Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. "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."
The Art of Atari Poster Collection will be released in June 2017 at finer comic shops and bookstores everywhere.
